Our environmental promise
As a family-run company we are committed to reducing the environmental impact for you and within our own organisation. With the eyes of future generations on us all, we continue to seek ways of reducing our waste and overall environmental impact on every removal we make.
We have always been at the forefront of actively promoting recycling in connection with our industry but increasingly we are partnering with our clients to meet their environmental targets and help deliver their CSR objectives and aims.
Over the last few years we have recycled, reused and repaired over 200 tonnes of unwanted office furniture and equipment preventing it from going to landfill.
Working together with our sister company and furniture recycling specialists, Eco-Office, we can take away all your unwanted furniture and equipment during or at the end of a removal or reorganisation. Our purpose is to maximise recycling and to minimise the amount of office furniture sent to landfill through a strong belief in Reuse, Repair & Recycling. Our aim is to send less than 1% of our clearances to landfill.
Here are just some of the ways together we make a positive impact on the environment and sensitively dispose of your unwanted office furniture and equipment.
Let us store your unwanted furniture in our dedicated storage facilities until you need it.
Our re-sell team return value to your unwanted spare furniture. We can collect and arrange the resell of quality furniture through our network of furniture dealers and contacts. And if you purchase used furniture from us, as an existing customer we will donate 10% of the profits to our designated charity.
Each year we donate used furniture and equipment to those in need it most. We support homeless, military and business charities to help rebuild lives and create opportunities.
We work hard to sort all our waste, separating the metal from the wood, the wheat from the chaff. That way when we visit the landfill we are confident that we are sending the smallest amount possible to landfill and the largest possible amount for recycling.
Don’t discard your tired furniture, replace those wonky wheels or broken locks! If we have a spare we’ll pop it in the post to you as all part of our service.
We offer a full range of refurbished furniture at a fraction of the cost and environmental impact.
Reducing carbon footprints
What’s more we’ll calculate your carbon and landfill saving for your CSR target or environmental KPI. So, if you are upgrading IT equipment, moving offices or simply have excess to requirements please call us for free advice on reducing its environmental impact.
Our own environmental promise
As a company we also take a keen concern on our own environmental impact, adapting to tread as lightly as possible on our surroundings.
- we are now using vehicle tracking: satellite navigation and specialist removals software which helps reduce fuel, costs and usage by optimising journey route planning and scheduling
- we are encouraging the minimal use of paper, and recycle all waste paper
- on all of our removals, IT is packed with reusable (anti static) bubble bags removing the need for bubble wrap
- where possible we communicate with clients by email or telephone
- we are researching the use of vehicles which use alternative fuels
