As springtime is upon beautiful Vancouver, it may be time to start clearing your corporate office space of things you’re no longer utilizing. Whether you are looking to bring new life to your office interior design with fresh furniture, or re-working space plans to create more distance between desks, think about these 5 tips for recycling office furniture before you simply dispose of anything!
1. Add a clean up package to your office move
Partner with an office move coordinator that can also assist in selling, donating, or holding your gently used office furniture until a user can be located. At DLO Move Support Services, we connect those who ‘have’ to those who ‘need’ so redundant furniture can have a second life.
2. Office-wide cleanup
Host an office-wide cleanup and sort through what furniture will suit your new space (if you are moving), or what you no longer have a use for. This may also include a post-move cleanup of your old office space. Once you have sorted through things, contact a company that will take away everything you no longer want and take care of recycling the office furniture for you. At DLO, we can add this service on to any office moving package.
3. Partner with a company that cares about the environment
In addition to finding the right clean up service for your office, partner with a company who is committed to green initiatives. At DLO, 95% of our clients use our plastic, re-usable eco-bins for their office moves and clean ups. We have over 5,000 bins that have been re-used for 10+ years.
4. Removal of redundant furniture & fixtures
The key to recycling office furniture is working with a company that can remove it and help you with the whole recycling process. If you are moving offices, seek a commercial moving company that not only transports what you want in your new space but will also assist with the removal of anything that you no longer need.
5. Recycle all materials
It can be difficult to know where to go and how to manage the disposal in an environmentally-friendly way. Take inventory of what you are looking to dispose of and consider the materials that are within it. During an office move or clean up by DLO, all metal, cardboard, paper and electronics are sorted individually and recycled to the appropriate vendor in Metro Vancouver.
If you are seeking a moving company that cares about the environment, consider DLO Move Support Services. We are strongly committed to Green Initiatives and have diverted the equivalent of 45 5-Ton trucks worth of office contents, furniture, and equipment from landfill to donation and sale on behalf of our clients. We also allow for any redundant furniture & fixtures to be stored at our warehouse while in transit, to be donated or upcycled to existing furniture systems of charities and/or companies in need.
