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.”
