3 Eco-friendly Ways to Get Rid of Old Office Furniture

Are you planning to relocate offices? If yes, the chances are you have a few pieces of old furniture to get rid of. Excess inventory may include desks, office chairs, filing cabinets, electronics and stationary supplies.

Keeping unwanted items can feel cumbersome and will take up precious space in the moving truck. While a disposal company will take these old furniture pieces to the dump, filling up landfills is not great for the environment. Take a look at these eco-friendly ways to get rid of old furniture items and do your bit for the planet.


One person’s trash is another person’s gold as the saying goes! Instead of putting old office furniture out in the rubbish, why not resell it? Just because you don’t need it anymore, someone else might have use for it.

Note down:

  • The brand
  • Age
  • Condition
  • How to use the item

These details can be used to sell your piece of furniture online. A few ways to resell your old items include contacting second hand furniture stores, advertising on eBay, asking around friends and family or taking them to a car-boot sale.


If your old office furniture is too broken to resell, recycling is a way to give it a new lease of life. It can be broken down and reused for another purpose. This way your old furniture won’t get wasted in a landfill.

If you have the time and skill, you could even revamp old pieces of office furniture. Many people make a living re-working old items, turning them into something more modern and useful.


Donating items to non-profit organizations is another way to get rid of unwanted furniture, while being kind to the environment. Do remember that this can only work if the items are still in a usable condition.

But, by donating old furniture to charities, you’re supporting those who help others. Talk with different organizations and they may even pay for transporting the furniture. If you can’t find any non-profits wanting your old items, talk with friends, family and second hand charity shops, who may be able to sell them on.
