According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, we dispose over 20 million tonnes of waste through landfill every year. Office furniture accounts for a large percentage of landfill by volume. Just under half of all commercial waste finds it’s way to landfill. This is a surprising figure, considering roughly 90% of commercial waste and around 97% of office waste can be reused and / or recycled. Egans Wise Office Furniture Program rescues on average 100, 000 office assets from ending up in Australia’s landfill sites annually, and this number is growing.
Wise Office Furniture has a vision of 100% landfill avoidance for every business across Australia. The program offers an audit-able retail, wholesale, recycle solution to businesses with redundant office assets. The process is sometimes referred to as reuse, resale, recycle.
Assets that you may require at a later stage are held in storage. Assets no longer required are resold if they have value and recycled if they have reached the end of their useful life. A complete audit-able and fully transparent report is generated at the end of the process for your business.
The Wise Office Furniture Program is in maturity with the connections and experience to get the most out of your redundant furniture. We even have the ability to recycle melamine, which is often considered non recyclable and leaks toxic pollutants into the top soil when placed in landfill.
