Office furniture Recycling
Most of our clients have a need from time to time to recycle their older business assets and redundant office furniture. We collaborate closely with them to ensure that this is undertaken in the most environmentally friendly and socially acceptable manner.
Maintaining our zero to landfill policy is achieved by working in direct partnership with accredited Waste Management companies who specialise in extracting re-usable material from general waste, share our commitment to being as environmentally focussed and sustainably active as possible, and offer the most cost-effective solutions.
Extracting secondary raw materials (such as metals, plastic, and wood) from general waste allows the resulting product to be put to effective use, and every item of waste material can then either re-used, re-generated or recycled in line with our environmental policy.
ISO 14000 – We are accredited to ISO 14001:2015 which demonstrates our commitment and obligation to environmental management.
We are fully compliant with applicable laws, regulations, and environmentally oriented requirements; thereby minimizing any adverse negative effects to the wider community.
