Benefits of office furniture re-use & recycle

As part of our continual development, Wagstaff have developed a series of initiatives to help customers to responsibly manage unwanted furniture, in a sustainable and cost effective way.

Although furniture may have reached the end of its life in its current environment, it doesn’t have to be the end of the road. By re-using one desk, pedestal and task chair you can save 177 kgs of CO2, when you consider that an estimated figure of 250,000 units of furniture comes to the end of its life each year, by re using just 50% could save 23,000 tonnes of CO2 released into the atmosphere, plus the new owner gets furniture they need at little or no cost.

What are the five avenues of furniture re-use & recycle?

Providing furniture to local & worldwide charities, Wagstaff have partnered with Waste to Wonder to implement this Internal churn - Wagstaff can set your business up with an internal ‘Swap Shop’ database to allow staff to pick and choose from company stock. Wagstaff can manage the whole process. Our online used furniture store ‘Five Lives’, where you can buy quality re-used products; We market your furniture online for re-sale. We buy quality unwanted furniture for use in our hire department.

Only if all of these options have been exhausted or furniture is beyond repair do we send it to be recycled. Recycling to us means segregating products into their core elements, wood, metal, plastic etc, this is done at our distribution hubs before being collected by local recycling companies.
