Finding a New Purpose

Taking care of our environment is key to Steelcase. Part of that is being smart with how furniture is handled once it is no longer wanted or needed. Steelcase can help.

Our Phase 2 Program consultants can evaluate furniture inventory and offer options for reuse — all with a zero landfill goal. The intent is for these used products to be placed back into service for reuse or recycled into new usable products. There are many options to choose from with social, environmental and economic benefits, and may help earn credit toward LEED certification.
