Where can I Buy Recycled Chairs?
Friday, May 22, 2020
Do you usually arrive at work, head to your desk, sit down in your chair and log on without a second thought? Things have changed. We’ve been forced to adapt workspaces, work patterns and processes to reduce potential risks to our health. Never before have so many businesses been focused on their office furniture and interior layout.
Many businesses have fast-tracked work from home options. Technology has made this a viable option for years, yet it took a pandemic to make it happen. As business owners realise that home working is viable, it could spell change. Are you considering downsizing to a smaller office for a core team, whilst encouraging employees to operate from home offices?
If the new office plans mean you have an excess of furniture, what are the options for clearing the space? The skip might be an obvious choice, but that is incredibly wasteful. Those office desks and chairs could be given a new home.
Recycling Office Chairs
Task chairs are complex designs, consisting of a mix of materials. Plastics, stainless steel, aluminium, foam and rubber are cleverly combined to provide comfort for those sitting for long periods. Whilst they are ergonomic delights, it is difficult to separate this combination of materials, therefore office chair recycling rates are very low. In the UK alone, around 1.8million office chairs end up in landfill every year*.
Recycled Office Furniture offers an alternative. Our professional team is registered with the Environment Agency to collect excess office furniture. Our policy is ‘zero to landfill’.
Approximately 14% of used office chairs are currently collected or donated for reuse. This small figure is estimated to save 12,000 tonnes of CO2-eq every year*. In addition to reducing the carbon footprint, there are considerable cost savings for the companies that purchase recycled chairs instead of buying new.
Recycled Business Furniture wants to play a part in boosting those environmental and financial savings.
Office Furniture Collection Service
Our team visits companies that are relocating, upgrading their interior design or closing down. We safely disassemble bulky office furniture and carefully remove all items for free. Our team is experienced and efficient, so they operate in ways to minimise disruption, such as arriving after office hours.
All office furniture is brought back to our warehouse. Other members of the team undertake thorough checks, including:
- Do adjustable features, rolling chair castors and other functional elements work?· What is the condition of the materials?
- Is any refurbishment required?
- Is this office chair still under warranty?
Surprisingly, only around 10% of all second-hand office chairs need refurbishment. They are built to last and most are in excellent working order, especially when it comes to the leading brands such as Herman Miller and Vitra.
