Recycling

Recycling

Office Furniture Specialists Limited is committed to recycling.

We operate our own 'Environmental Footprint Programme' which we run to high standards.

Our initial goal was to achieve less waste every year with the ultimate goal of 0 cubic metres going to the refuse pit by 2015.

This was achieved earlier for 2012 - 2014.

However, this has now become nigh on impossible with new imported low quality product into New Zealand.

Since 2004 Office Furniture has monitored the following.

  1. 2004 4.5 Cubic Metres
  2. 2005 4.75 Cubic Metres
  3. 2006 3.25 Cubic Metres
  4. 2007 3.2 Cubic Metres
  5. 2008 4.2 Cubic Metres
  6. 2009 2.9 Cubic Metres
  7. 2010 2.6 Cubic Metres
  8. 2011 1.2 Cubic Metres
  9. 2012  Zero Cubic Metres The first year OFS did not go to any refuse site.
  10. 2013 Zero Cubic Metres
  11. 2014 Zero Cubic Metres
  12. 2015 3.2 Cubic Metres
  13. 2016 7 Cubic Metres
  14. 2017 8 Cubit Metres

 

How do we do this with what materials?

  • Polystyrene is Recycled in Dunedin
  • Cardboard is recycled in Dunedin
  • Paper is recycled in Dunedin
  • Alloys are recycled in Dunedin
  • Joinery board is recycled in Dunedin
  • Glass recycled in Dunedin
  • Stretch Film Wrap recycled in Dunedin
  • Package banding recycled in Dunedin

 

Office Furniture Specialists Limited do not import any international chip board which we deem to have negative effects on our recycling ability and economy.

Unfortunately OFS in 2015, 2016 and 2017 have been replacing a lot of imported chip board (not retailed by us) which cannot be recycled.
