Better Cause Society

We help families turn their houses into homes. Our goal is to reduce the impact of used furniture being dumped into our landfills by repurposing it to people who are in need that have a living space, but no furniture.

Our Goal

Helping Families that Need it Most

As members of the lower mainland community, and as the owners of the waste removal and recycling company Blacks Diposal, it became very clear to us that an abundant source of quality second-hand household items are constantly being dumped in our landfills. Thing’s like couches, dressers, beds and more, were just going to waste when they could be helping a less fortunate family in need. We decided this needed to change, and out of that change sprouted the Better Cause Society, with the goal of redistributing these goods to families who need it most. 

We aim to help as many single parents on income assistance, newly immigrated or refugee families, women from transition homes, and any other less fortunate families in the lower mainland as we can.

How Does it Work?

Every week our sister company Blacks Disposal collects quality second hand furniture and house hold goods, and the Better Cause Society, along with volunteers from across the lower mainland help to redistribute these items.

  1. Item’s are collected or donated to our foundation
  2. We store these items at our warehouse, instead of the used good being dumped into a landfill
  3. We are connected with a family in need that is spoonsored through our referral program
  4. We contact the family in need and the sponsor organization to setup a delivery date and to find out what furniture is needed
  5. The requested furniture items are delivered directly to their house, and in most cases can be setup for them
  6. After the family in need no longer needs the furniture they received, we will come back to pickup it up and recycle if needed
