  • Donate to the Bower

    If you have household furniture, bikes, kitchenware, books, working appliances or small amounts of building materials that you no longer want, call The Bower on 02 9568 6280 to see if they can take your donation. They offer a free collection service for City of Sydney residents. If they can’t take your goods they’ll refer you to someone who will.

Reusing or recycling something is better for the environment than throwing it away. If your furniture is still in good condition, consider donating it to charity or selling it online.
