Relocating your office often involves disposing of furniture, IT equipment and other materials due for an upgrade at your new facilities. Most businesses will take the opportunity to recycle, although this isn’t always easy. It can be tempting to send tricky composite materials and outdated equipment straight to landfill, but if you don’t do everything possible to avoid traditional disposal, there are significant risks to both the your company and the environment:

Pickfords Business Solutions’ launched an environmental service at the end of 2010 to provide recycling and reuse services to help companies across the UK dispose of unwanted assets. The service aims to help companies meet their environmental targets when faced with the disposal of redundant furniture and IT equipment and provides a cost effective alternative to landfill.
The service includes asset tagging, collection and delivery to a Pickfords storage facility. Items that can be reused are placed locally with not- for-profit organisations, community groups or furniture resellers. Other items are stripped of their components and metal, wood and plastic and recycled. The entire process is tracked and certification provided so clients can demonstrate their environmental credentials.
Nicki Brotherston, Head of Environmental Reuse said, “one of the great things about being in the recycling and waste management business is being able to identify useful items and then send them to deserving causes. The RSPCA is a key member of our Partner Network and we will continue to work closely with them.”
