Spring Cleaning? Bring Gently-Used Furniture and more to North Castle’s “Zero Waste Day” in Armonk — TODAY, April 21, 2012

Why not get a head start on your spring cleaning this month by donating your gently-used furniture and other items to needy families?   Furniture Sharehouse, which provides gently-used free furniture to families moving out of homeless shelters, escaping domestic violence, or recovering from natural or personal disasters, will be collecting furniture from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the parking lot of the North Castle Town Hall in Armonk.

Donors are urged to review the donation guidelines at www.furnituresharehouse.org to see what can be donated and what cannot be accepted prior to loading their car or wagon. Furniture Sharehouse does not accept faded, ripped or stained upholstery, king size beds, sleeper sofas, office and outdoor furniture, or oversized or heavy items.  Donors will be given a receipt itemizing their donations for tax purposes. If you can’t drop your items on April 21st, pick-ups are available for a minimum of three large items and a suggested donation, and donors are also encouraged to drop off items at the warehouse at the Westchester County Airport (see website for details).  For more information about Furniture Sharehouse’s Drive, contact Sharon Camacho:  sharonnyca@gmail.com.

Other organizations that will be collecting donations at North Castle’s April 21st Zero Waste Day include:  Katonah Community Center (spring and summer clothing); Recycle-a-Bicycle (used bikes in good working order); and Adopt-a-Dog (pet supplies).  North Castle residents only will be able to recycle E-Waste; scrap metal; bulky items; oil; and Paper Shredding will be available.  Go to www.northcastleny.com for more information about what these other organizations are collecting.
