Our Charity Status
Cunninghame Furniture Recycling Company is a registered charity and not for profit organisation. All proceeds from the sale of goods are retained and reinvested in our charitable activities.
Cunninghame Furniture Recycling Company has been established as a charitable subsidiary of Cunninghame Housing Association Ltd, one of Ayrshire’s leading social landlords.
Operating as a social enterprise and having charitable status, CFRC has established itself as a free and convenient service for those who want to get rid of unwanted furniture and white goods in an ethical manner and a valuable resource for those looking to furnish their home at an affordable price.
Recycling and re-using good quality furniture not only re-distributes much needed items to those on limited incomes, it also impacts on landfill and the costs associated with that, both financial and ecological.
Since we opened in mid 2010 CFRC has:-
• collected 255 tonnes of unwanted furniture and white goods, diverting 85% from landfill.
• assisted more than 1700 households to furnish their homes
• provided 25 training and employment opportunities for previously unemployed Ayrshire residents.
