Directions

Millions of pounds of furniture are dumped in domestic landfills every year.  With careful consideration and some pre-planning, much of the waste can be diverted.  Responsible methods include reuse, resale, repurpose, and recycle in environmentally conscious ways.  On your next facilities project, find out how you can transform your corporate surplus furniture into community service when partnering with ANEW, a national 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization.

Learning Points

  • Cost effective approach and single point resource regarding furniture surplus
  • Benefits of the ANEW Decommissioning Strategy provide your clients with 3rd party assurances and documentation
  • How to earn LEED Certification points in Material Reuse, Waste Diversion and Innovation Design
