Share the precise outcome of each project with your entire company through our proprietary report portal.



Roughly 10 million tons of office furniture and equipment is land-filled each year in North America.


Nearly all of it is created by office changeover and the tendency to mismanage surplus furnishings and equipment.

We divert 98% of your surplus from landfill, much of which benefits local non-profits. What's more, you'll recoup tangible value from resale, tax receipts, environmental reporting, and positive PR opportunities.
