RUSTINGTON, England, March 9, 2011 - A company specialising in the supply and installation of new
office furniture has turned green. South Coast Office Furniture
(, a West Sussex based firm, has
acted on reducing the impact on landfill sites by offering a recycling

Operating on a not-for-profit basis, the owners plan to
recycle perfectly usable furniture to business, charities, schools and other
public sector bodies that have a need for the equipment.

They quickly realised the recycling opportunities when they
were clearing out large amounts of used office furniture from businesses that
had either suffered liquidation during the recession or were replacing old
office furniture for new. They jumped at the opportunity to work on a
non-for-profit basis to recycle perfectly usable furniture to business,
charities, schools and other public sector bodies that had a need for the

trades to take place and hopefully put an end to the needless waste. The site

With over 500,000 tonnes of office furniture being landfilled
each year, the aim is to reuse and recycle it in large quantities. They will
be working alongside local district councils and are presenting to
organizations like South Wessex Waste Minimisation Group ( and its members in June to promote the recycling of
used Office Furniture within the region. The SWWMG help businesses with waste
minimisation techniques and provide businesses with updates on relevant waste
management legislation.

The company will be offering end users the ability to "give
away" and also to receive free furniture on their website, where they can
list products by categories with images. Charities will have the option to
contact and collect any furniture they may need.

The total commercial and industrial waste generation in
England is estimated to be around 48 million tonnes (as published by DEFRA).
Organisations have a social and ethical responsibility to ensure that safe
and effective measures are taken to reduce the need for landfill and to
ensure that waste is disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. The
management of waste is a key component in a business's ability to maintain
ISO14001 accreditation. Companies are encouraged to improve their
environmental efficiencies each year. One way to do this is by improving a
company's waste management with a new recycling service which also benefits
those most in need.

South Coast Office Furniture is a leading new on-line ( office furniture supply company
based in South England.
