By promoting and encouraging the reuse of materials and resources throughout the Scottish Business Community we hope to raise awareness of recycling and re-use of office furniture, divert waste from landfill and help companies realise the financial benefits of sound environmental practice.
Where to go for help:
Recycle Scotland specialise in the total recycling of unwanted office furniture, offering a clear identifiable alternative to landfill. They achieve this by re-using and recycling through charities, social enterprises and small businesses.

Creative Waste Exchange
Environmental charity Aberdeen Forward has run the Creative Waste Exchange. The Exchange collects unwanted office furniture, stationery and arts and craft resources from businesses in Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire. The materials are then redistributed to the local community as a good quality, low cost resource.
