What are we doing with the furniture?!?! When moving to a new space, this is one of the first questions that should be answered, but because it is one of thousands of details a Facilities Manager is responsible for, most times it’s the last question considered. Most companies opt for new furniture when they relocate, but no one wants the existing furniture to go into a landfill. Fortunately, there is a green solution.
Going green is a major goal for corporations across the globe, and for good reason. Focusing on green efforts proves to consumers, investors, and staff members alike that you care about the future of our planet. Green liquidation is a great way to start your transition off in a philanthropic direction.
Instead of having 100% of your FF&E (furniture, fixtures, and equipment) sent to the landfill, green liquidation finds ways to recycle and repurpose your old furniture for other businesses and organizations. Repurposing unwanted assets comes in many forms, from selling them to small businesses to donating materials to local nonprofits. There are entire liquidation companies dedicated to keeping as much commercial office material out of the landfills as possible. Corporate Move Consulting Inc will recommend green liquidation options in your area.
Green liquidation is the most environmentally responsible way to deal with your unwanted furniture. With planning and foresight at the head of your relocation project, you can minimize your company’s contributions to refuse at the landfill. Making sure your company takes the extra steps needed for green liquidation at the onset of your transition is an opportunity to benefit your community and gain an eco-friendly reputation. Consult with CMCI to determine how your corporation can responsibly repurpose your office furniture and equipment.
