Miscellaneous Office Furniture and Electronics
General Motors' Austin Call Center contacted us for assistance in facilitating the reuse or recycling of a significant amount of unneeded office furniture and obsolete electronics. We were able to facilitate a connection between General Motors and Texas Office Products & Supply for the transportation, reuse and recycling of nearly all of GM's materials, about 75 cubic yards total. In addition to landfill diversion, this transaction saved GM ~$600, and estimated resale value for TOPS is ~$3,000. Click here for details on the types of the materials. And as of May 2015, GM has continued to use the program to divert additional office furniture and equipment from the landfill - a great example of global landfill-free objectives aligning with local opportunities and action.
