Frequently Asked Questions

Off the Curb, Inc. FAQs

What is OTC?

Off the Curb is Pittsburgh’s premiere source for information to keep furniture off the curb and out of landfills.

Why do we need to keep furniture out of landfills?

We all know the planet could use a break from our trash, and some great alternatives to furniture disposal already exist in the Pittsburgh area.

What are the alternatives?

To start with, we advocate assessing your furniture to see if it can be repaired, repurposed, reused or recycled. For detailed information about those stages, check out https://www.offthecurb.org/4-stages.

Can YOU take my furniture?

Off the Curb, Inc. has partnered with select realtors in Pittsburgh’s South Hills to give home buyers and sellers an easy alternative to the landfill. This pilot furniture rescue program will help us gather information and finetune our operation so that we can expand the service in the future. Your time, talent, and donations will help us reach our expansion goals faster. If you’re interested in volunteering as part of a furniture rescue team or making a donation to support our efforts, let us know. In the meantime, we’ve created a list of charities, businesses, and groups that may be interested in taking your furniture now. You can download the database here.
