Nothing spruces up an office and motivates people more than getting new decor and modernizing the look and feel of your business. Your employees and your business guests will feel re-energized, and you convey a message to the visiting public that shouts “Innovation! Modern! Moving forward!” However, updating your office also means throwing out the old furniture. At OJ Installations in Atlanta, we always recommend that you recycle your old office furniture for your benefit and the benefit of your community and the world.
Save the Bottom Line
While we aren’t tax consultants, many times if you donate your old furniture to a nonprofit, you can claim it as a deduction on your taxes. The old furniture doesn’t end up in your trash stream, so you won’t have to pay for it to get taken to the dump and pay the dumping fees. Even better, if you can partner with the community organization receiving the furniture, you can get some good publicity out of the deal.
Save the Environment
When your old furniture doesn’t go to the landfill, you’re saving the environment. Parts that are saved form the old furniture do not need to be manufactured new, and that saves on resources. These benefits can be highlighted as part of any yearly reports your business does, and you get the goodwill engendered by the fact that you’re caring for the environment.
Save the Community
Every nonprofit in your community can use donations. Some may accept your old furniture to sell. Others may need it to remodel their own offices. If you’re unsure who in your community will take your furniture donation, ask your furniture installation services in Atlanta. They may be able to give you recommendations on who you should call. Just remember that not all charities will have a use for old office furniture, but if you find one that does, you’re doing your part to make the community better.
