Cunninghame Furniture Recycling Company
 
Cunninghame Furniture Recycling Company - CFRC is a charitable organisation whose purpose is to find new homes for unwanted but re-usable furniture and household goods across Ayrshire.
 
CFRC was established in May 2010 to offer:
 
A free and convenient means for the general public to donate unwanted furniture and white goods which have a re-use value - thereby diverting the goods they collect from landfill and reducing Ayrshire's environmental footprint.
 
Furniture re-use as a credible alternative to expensive shopping on the high street.  CFRC offers a range of furniture and white goods for re-sale to those who want to furnish their homes on a budget.
 
Training and employment opportunities for Ayrshire residents managing their operations, driving the CFRC vans and operating and administering their warehouse collection and distribution services.
 
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 it opened in 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.
