For decades, office waste was believed to be primarily attributed to the use of paper and paperboard products, which made up 26% of the waste. From 2005 to 2015 however, the amount of paper waste from corporate offices decreased by 16 million tons.
For millennials, corporate office waste is looking more and more like the bulky desks, chairs and electronics that turn over so rapidly. Approximately 8.5 million tons of office furniture ends up in landfills annually and 4% of most companies’ budgets go toward waste management. So, what does that mean? You are actually paying more to have your furniture hauled to the nearest landfill, destroying the ecosystem and your budget.
So yes, corporate America has kicked the K-Cups and print-outs, but we are changing office furniture out more and more each year and waste management costs aren’t getting any cheaper. Save money, time and energy! Call Gone for Good at (720) 594-2292 to repurpose your old office furniture today.
