Putting fur­ni­ture to use

Rutherglen Reformer - - Switched On Scotland -

Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang res­i­dents look­ing to make space for vis­it­ing fam­ily mem­bers over the fes­tive pe­riod can have bulky fur­ni­ture items col­lected for free through a re­use phone line.

The free ser­vice, man­aged by Zero Waste Scot­land, col­lects un­wanted items such as wardrobes, chests of draw­ers, side­boards, ta­bles, so­fas and beds that are in re­us­able con­di­tion and takes them away.

The ser­vice is a has­sle-free way to move items on that you no longer want in a way that’s good for both planet and pocket.

The free ser­vice also en­sures items in good con­di­tion go on to have a longer life, which re­duces their im­pact on the en­vi­ron­ment.

Lo­cal res­i­dents can call 0800 0665 820 to pass their items on. Items are col­lected by lo­cal re­use or­gan­i­sa­tions which sell the fur­ni­ture to raise money.

The phone line is open from 9am to 5pm and there is a web­site at www.reuse­phone­line. com.
