Besides selling your second hand furniture, you can also opt to give it away.

Pass It On

Pass It On is an organisation jointly created by Central Singapore Community Development Council and The Helping Hand; they aim to redistribute your unwanted (but still in working condition) items to the needy and underprivileged.

Donated items (including used furniture) will be made available to Voluntary Welfare Organisations, for example Family Service Centres and Senior Citizen Centres.

In order to donate your used furniture and other items, visit Pass It On’s donation page. Type in your basic personal details, and description of the items that you would like to give away. Their administrators will then contact you for confirmation and verification.

Should you require any assistance, you can contact the organisation @ 6283 2204.

Freecycle

Freecycle (also known as Singapore Freecycle Network) is a Yahoo Group where Singaporeans gather, to give away or ask for furniture, appliances, and other miscellaneous items. The network aims to reduce waste by connecting people who are discarding their unwanted items, with other people who might be seeking similar goods.

Note: If your furniture is in a poor condition, it will be difficult to find an organisation which would accept your donation. In cases like this, you might want to consider disposing your item instead. You can find disposal services here and here.
