Over time, your once-new office furniture will become less desirable. However, as long as it’s not broken, it doesn’t necessarily have to go to a nearby landfill. It would be wasteful to put furniture in usable condition in the dump, after all. So what should you do instead? You should donate office furniture, of course! It’s not just a great way to reduce needless waste. It’s a great way to get the good stuff into the hands of our neighbors in need, too.
However, it’s not always immediately clear where to donate used office furniture. What are the best options nearby? There are actually countless places to donate office furniture, and we’ve assembled a few of them in this list for you. Check them out, find out which one you like the best, and donate office equipment to them today!
The Habitat for Humanity ReStore
There are two different Habitat for Humanity ReStore locations in Metro Atlanta. You can take your unwanted office furniture to either of them, so choose the one that’s closest to you or the one with the more convenient schedule. The revenue generated by selling your old furniture will be used to help construct affordable housing in our community. So, in a roundabout way, by supporting the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, you’ll help provide shelter to our neighbors in need. Office furniture pick-up services are available, though you may have to wait a few weeks for a free pick-up.
Atlanta Location: 271 Chester Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30316. Open Tuesday-Saturday, 11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
South Fulton Location: 5626 Old National Hwy, College Park, GA 30349. Open Wednesday-Saturday, 11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta
Have you ever heard of the Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta? It’s a furniture donation site with a noble goal. They provide furniture to families and individuals in the area who have homes but don’t have furniture. Through the Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta, these people can furnish their homes with sofas, dining room tables, chairs, and other important pieces of furniture. Your unwanted office desks can help provide these people with great places to study or do homework with their children.
Atlanta Location: 908 Murphy Ave SW, Atlanta, GA 30310. Open Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
American Kidney Services
Kidney disease is a serious condition, and there are many among us who suffer from it. This is an expensive condition to combat, too, and not everyone is financially equipped for this fight. Because of this, American Kidney Services does various fundraising activities to help cover the medical fees of those with kidney disease. The resale of used furniture is just one of these activities. If you have a loved one with kidney disease, you may feel compelled to help support AKS’s mission, and donating your used office furniture is a great way to make this happen.
Atlanta Location: 6360 Button Gwinnett Dr, Atlanta, GA 30340. Open Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
Almost everyone has heard about the Salvation Army, but you not might be familiar with the cause behind their mission. The Salvation Army is a Christian organization that aims to carry out the Biblical principles of goodwill and charity. For example, they feed and shelter the homeless using funds generated by their thrift stores. These thrift stores even sell furniture, including used office furniture! Whether you are religious or not, this is a great place to donate office furniture.
Atlanta Location: 746 Marietta St NW, Atlanta, GA 30318. Open Monday-Saturday, 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. Open Wednesday, 10:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.
Donation Pickup with Funky’s Junk Removal
Many local thrift stores provide free pickup services, but it’s often difficult to get those free pickups sooner rather than later. As you can imagine, these thrift stores are under a lot of pressure to collect all these donations, forcing them to have a large backlog of pick-up appointments. However, if you want to donate office furniture without waiting, you are left with a few options. One, you can drop off the furniture for yourself—which may require a vehicle that’s larger than what you currently have. Two, you can contract with Funky’s Junk Removal and schedule a furniture removal appointment.
We are a junk removal business located near you, and we have lots of experience with removing furniture. What’s more, we are also very familiar with our local donation sites because we are constantly bringing them junk to stock their shelves with. It’s part of our eco-friendly commitment to divert these items from the dump, you see. We’ll be happy to collect your furniture for you and donate it on your behalf. We can even be there as soon as today or tomorrow. However, just keep in mind that we will request a reasonable volume-based fee for our services.
