Celebrate Earth Day with the 4 R’s: Resell, Repurpose, Recycle and Remove

Celebrate Earth Day with the 4 R’s: Resell, Repurpose, Recycle and Remove

April 17, 2017 By King Relocation


Celebrate Earth Day with the 4 R’s

On Saturday, April 22, millions of people around the globe will come together to build awareness for the modern environmental movement commonly known as Earth Day.

Founded in 1970 in the United States by Gaylord Nelson, a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin who witnessed the ravages of the 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, Calif., and wanted to help fuel public consciousness around air and water pollution, the Earth Day movement today focuses on building a healthy, sustainable environment for future generations.

At King Companies, we celebrate Earth Day year-round through the King Office Services’ Green Removal Program. Offering access to a nationwide network of established resources including liquidators, charities and other organizations that are available to assist our valued clients in “greening” their reduction efforts, our Green Removal Program focuses on the 4 R’s — Resell, Repurpose, Recycle and Remove.

  • Resell (100% Green) – This is always the preferred method of disposal, but due to the volume of used goods in the market today, reselling or liquidating unwanted furniture, fixtures and equipment has become increasingly difficult. If successful, though, it can yield the least cost and can even provide you with a profit. It is important to note that the possibility of selling unwanted items depends on the age, condition and time available to market and sell the goods.
  • Repurpose (100% Green) – Repurposing or reusing unwanted goods by giving them to a charity or nonprofit group is a great way to avoid the landfill, while at the same time supporting a good cause. Our network of charities includes more than 1,000 local nonprofits here in the U.S. and abroad.
  • Recycle (95% Green) – Wood, plastics, metals and other materials can be separated into proper recycling condition and then incorporated into other goods. Remember that collected materials can go well beyond the basics and include e-waste, hazardous waste, and more. Through King Companies you can gain access to reputable firms that are experienced in recycling these items
  • Remove and Dispose (70% Green) – As the last resort for reducing goods, removal should not be confused with recycling. The fact is that even with widespread recycling, 30% or more of unwanted items today end up in landfills. This not only costs you money through the fees to pay to access the landfill, but it will also impact our planet for years to come.

Additionally, we want our customers to know that King Companies’ commitment to the environment goes well beyond green removal. In fact, for every office relocation, our King Office Services team recommends the use of re-usable plastic crates vs. cardboard boxes. Because there is no recycling involved, only re-use with our crates, it helps to reduce the overall carbon footprint.
