If you're looking to find a new home for your unwanted items such as furniture, you can donate them to a local charitable or not-for-profit making organisation.
These items will find a new lease of life with someone who really needs them and avoid ending up in landfill.
These organisations will collect your items from your home free of charge.
You should always be aware when someone you don't know calls at your door. More information is available on our bogus callers section
For more information about organisations in your area that offer this service please contact them directly or click on the links below.
If you are a charity or a not-for-profit making organisation who offers a similar free service in Belfast, why not contact us and we will add your contact details to our list.
We are supporting Choose Charity Shops, a campaign aimed at encouraging more people to donate directly to charity shops.
Many local charity shops are struggling for stock and really need your donations. By donating you are not only supporting those in need, but you are also helping to keep quality clothing, accessories, books and household items out of landfill sites.
Most shopping areas around the city will have at least one charity shop which you can donate to and many organisations will actually collect from your home too (see details of some charity shops below).
If you have items that are not suitable for a charity shop, remember you can bring them to any of our recycling centres
More information on the campaign is available at www.choosecharityshops.org
