Office Furniture Recyling Scheme to help save the planet

Tuesday 6 May 2008

A RECYCLING scheme launched in Edinburgh has set the target of saving 20,000 tonnes of waste from landfills every year.

The partnership between Recycle Scotland and design experts Space Solutions will see unwanted furniture from some offices reused in others.

It is widely seen as an effective way to stop large pieces of furniture taking up space in landfill sites.

Space Solutions, which kits out offices around the country, will automatically put Recycle in touch with hundreds of organisations looking to offload furniture.

Ian Kennaway, a spokesman for Recycle Scotland, said: \"This is a really exciting project for us. Space Solutions will give us access to a potential 400 businesses, many with furniture they no longer need.\"

Since Recycle Scotland, part of the Edinburgh University Settlement, was formed two years ago it has recycled 2000 tonnes of furniture – a figure now expected to rise sharply.

Mr Kennaway added: \"Businesses are becoming increasingly aware of their social responsibility and the need to reduce their carbon footprint. By donating to us used furniture that would otherwise be dumped, they can achieve that.\"
