Bluecycle – Sharing Through Recycling

Bluecycle was started by the WPCF in 2015 in response to requests from less privileged Singaporean families for pre-loved furniture and electrical appliances due to financial hardship. As the name suggests, our team of volunteers seek to match needy recipients with Good Samaritans across Singapore who may no longer have a need for some of their things at home or at work.

These mainly consist of refrigerators, washing machines, televisions, computers, sofas, beds, cupboards and tables etc. Through this program, we hope to build a spirit of sharing and support in the community while leaving a sustainable world for our future generations. So before you discard your unwanted items, why not do your bit for charity and help to restore blue skies at the same time?

Below are some commonly asked questions about Bluecycle:

  1. What items can I donate?
    We usually receive requests for white goods (e.g. washing machine, refrigerators etc.) and furniture (e.g. beds, sofas, cupboards etc.). However, since the suitability of items will depend on whether there is a match with beneficiary, please fill up this form and we will reply if there is a match.

  2. What items do you NOT accept?
    We regret that we are unable to take donations of clothes, newspapers, toys, books and other non-electrical small items.

  3. How soon can you collect the items from me?
    As we do not have any storage space, we will only contact donors when we are able to find a matching recipient. This typically takes a couple of weeks.
    We will then arrange to collect these items from donors and deliver these on the same day to the matched recipients. This is usually done on the first Saturday of every month.

  4. What if my item is faulty, damaged or badly worn out?
    We do not provide repair or installation services (although we do assist with dismantling your bulky items for transportation if necessary). Only items in clean and good working condition will be accepted.

  5. Which parts of Singapore do you collect/deliver these items?
    We accept donated items and requests for such items from any part of Singapore although priority will be given to recipients living in Aljunied GRC, Sengkang GRC and Hougang SMC.

  6. Do I have to pay a fee or help with the removal?
    Of course not! However, we gladly appreciate any monetary donations to the WP Community Fund which helps to keep Bluecycle and our other welfare assistance programs going. We warmly welcome you to join us as a volunteer too whenever you can!

  7. Will I get to meet the recipient or know who my donated items have gone to?
    To protect the confidentiality of our less privileged recipients, we seek your kind understanding that this is not possible.

*Please note that while The WPCF (UEN: 201401272N) is an approved charity in Singapore, monetary donations are not tax-deductible.
