Di-vert to cut office waste
Robinsons, a London business moving
company, has launched Di-vert, Britain’s
first fully-audited office furniture
waste recycling service. The service
is designed to minimize the environmental
impact of organizations moving locations.
Companies using the Di-vert service
will have their unwanted office furniture
either reused or recycled, ensuring
none of the waste ends up in a landfill.
Di-vert ensures furniture is reconditioned,
reused or recycled for use back into
the manufacturing process.
Alternatively, pulped materials are
used in a variety of growing markets,
such as animal bedding. Additionally,
a full audit trail is provided, which
guarantees that the whole process
of getting rid of waste products
is entirely transparent.
Anthony Robinson, managing director
of Robinsons International, said,
“It is estimated that the UK sends
over [550,000 tons] of furniture
to landfill every year – with a big
part of this coming from office moves
or relocations. Our new service has
been launched to highlight this issue
and make sure it is firmly on people’s
agenda and Britain’s waste office
furniture is fully accounted for.”
