Updating commercial office interiors, moving to a new building or expanding your company usually means one thing – dealing with used office furniture. Sometimes this is more of a challenge than expected, as simply throwing them in the landfill may seem easy, but in reality, is the least profitable and most environmentally-friendly option. Here are some ideas on how to make this process easier, more profitable and more eco-friendly.
Recycle, Upcycle and Go Green
Because going Green is such an important focus for many companies, corporate office furniture specialists are offering services to help you remove office surplus in a way that gets used furniture off your hands but doesn’t simply bin it.
In fact, these services often specialize in upcycling – the process whereby old furniture is broken down and re-designed into new, useful items that can then benefit modern offices and be put to use once more in the workplace environment.
Upcycling can take care of many surplus items that often form the bulk of office storage and clutter, including desks, cabinets, filing cabinets, office chairs and tables, cubicles and partitions, and even carpet.
Recycling can also cover the packaging and padding that comes with your new office furniture, including cardboard, foam, bubble wrap and more.
What to do
If you want to make use of these services, the first thing to do is make a comprehensive list of the inventory your business no longer requires. This makes it easy to sort out what furniture is staying and what is no longer needed, as well as making it easier for the recycling service to collect and prepare for your old office furniture.
The next step is to contact a local service provider with a good reputation. Since they are close by, they are more likely to want your furniture and will find it easier to arrange a time and date for pickup, and work flexibly with your company’s needs.
