It is estimated that the UK around 434 million tonnes of office furniture ends up in landfill each year. Approximately 90% of this could be recycled, reused or restored reducing landfill and the creation of methane which has been proven to cause global warming.
By law, a business must keep waste to a minimum by by doing everything it reasonably can to prevent, reuse, recycle or recover waste (in that order). Business' also have responsibilities for disposing of any waste safely and securely using registered carriers. Many commercial removal companies do not offer clearances.
Ecooffice was founded to work alongside commercial remover or direct with companies to help companies meet their environmental and legal responsibilities.
