Planning an upcoming office relocation? Have you thought about how much waste from your office move could end up in landfills? With all of the things on your to-do list, it is unlikely you have. However, considering a recent Yale study indicating the United States is disposing of more than twice the amount of solid waste than the EPA estimated, and the environmental impacts of that waste, we should all be thinking more about waste reduction.
Chipman Relocation & Logistics can make it easy for you. Our REUSE, REDESIGNATE and RECYCLE program reduces the amount of waste an office relocation often generates and will make your move more environmentally friendly. Plus, by working with Chipman’s office movers, you can relax knowing the expert movers will provide a turn-key office move that is successful and economical.
Chipman’s Green Office Relocation Program
As part of Chipman’s efforts to help minimize the environmental impact of office relocations and reduce the amount of waste going into landfills, we are committed to recycling all reusable materials. Our REUSE, REDESIGNATE and RECYCLE program includes the following:
- All recovered cardboard and paper packing materials are sorted, baled and palletized for recycling.
- Unwanted office furniture in usable condition is donated to local charities such as Goodwill, Habitat for Humanity and Hope Charters.
- Rather than disposing of office furniture that is not reusable, we recycle. The furniture is disassembled and the metal and wood sent for recycling.
- Chipman does not profit from providing decommissioning and recycling services. All of those services are provided at cost. In some cases, redesignation efforts or selling of assets makes it possible for Chipman to provide decommissioning services free of charge.
To learn more about our program, talk to your move coordinator or contact us now.
If you have the time to explore other options, Chipman also offers tips on office furniture disposal as well as tips on how to dispose of old computers and electronics. You may even be able to sell your unwanted items or get a tax write-off by donating them to a charitable organization if the items are in good, usable condition.
With a little time and effort, you can make your office relocation more environmentally friendly by reducing the waste sent to landfills. When partnering with Chipman, it takes no additional time or effort on your part at all!
