Waste Management

Waste management is a growing priority for every business. Your company may be looking at ways to minimise waste or considering how you might achieve zero waste to landfill policies.

It may not be the first point to spring to mind, but used office furniture should be part of the waste management plan.

According to the Waste Resource Action Programme (WRAP) data, just 14% of the potential volume of used office furniture is donated or sold on. Rather than recycle chairs, desks and storage, many companies are simply disposing of them. This means they end up in landfill.

Giving Used Office Furniture a New Lease of Life

Even at a relatively low 14%, the recycling of second-hand office has helped to prevent thousands of tonnes of CO2 entering the atmosphere. At 2nd User Furniture, we are working to increase that percentage.

Our sister company Clear Environment can be called on to undertake sustainable office clearance. Classified as an ‘Upper Tier Waste Broker Dealer’, Clear Environment is registered with the Environment Agency. The service is legally compliant and fully traceable.

This used office furniture collection service can save you the costs associated with the disposal of your surplus office chairs and desks. If your used office furniture is in suitable condition to clean up, repair or remodel, we will do so. Items in great condition will be sold in the 2nd User Furniture Showroom.
