In our beloved New York City, most of our unused (but reusable) items and furniture-no matter their condition-end up either sitting on the sidewalk or taking up space in a landfill. We founded The Junkluggers to find a better way.
Now, along with our amazing charity partners, we're proud to say we're doing something about it. The Junkluggers of NYC is always building our network of charities in service of our number one mission-to donate (or recycle) as many of our customers' items as possible. We're deeply passionate about our work-not only because it's great for the environment, but because it benefits our local community, too.
Those in need receive much-needed furniture, clothing, and critical items-and our customers get a tax-deductible receipt accounting for every item we're able to donate, which helps offset the costs of our removal services.
In the last year alone, The Junkluggers kept over 10 million pounds of furniture and junk out of landfills. We donated couches to formerly homeless veterans, brought toys to children in need, and delivered shoes and clothing to help keep our neighbors warm. We brought much-needed furniture to the FDNY, to youth settlement houses, and to nonprofits and schools that couldn't afford these critical items.
Wondering where your stuff will end up? What follows is a list of some of our awesome partners in the charity and nonprofit worlds. It's not comprehensive, but it will give you an idea of the kinds of people, causes, and organizations that your furniture, "junk," and other items can help to support.
