Furniture Recycling Alongside Laboratory Equipment Services

26 January 2018

When a laboratory undergoes a refit, refurbishment or relocation there are often changes to be made – and new spaces, fresh furniture and chemistry equipment is often introduced. So what happens to the non-specialist items that are no longer required – such as chairs, desks, tables and storage units? Asset recycling from Johnsons could provide the answer.

Why is recycling a savvy option?

Conscious companies are now favoured by consumers – but the benefits of recycling furniture are also interesting from a financial and organisational perspective. When furniture is redundant or no longer required, disposing of it can pose a massive headache for busy organisations without the time or inclination to sell or look for a new home for it. Some disposal options can be costly – and there’s no guarantee that the items you discard will be dealt with responsibly.

Save the planet

Recycling naturally has a positive knock-on effect on the environment around us. This is great news for laboratories with an actively eco-friendly, ethical focus, implementing conscious practices as part of their day-to-day activity. Our services actively support your commitment to waste reduction and prevention – by encouraging companies to adopt a ‘zero landfill’ policy through providing simple, straightforward services and a hassle-free alternative to traditional options.

Arranging furniture recycling alongside laboratory equipment services for maximum efficiency

Combining furniture removal and recycling alongside laboratory equipment services can be efficient and hugely beneficial for managers looking to reduce disruption and downtime caused by relocation or refurbishment. At Johnsons we provide specialist laboratory equipment services and commercial recycling provision – so we can organise assistance and disposal to coincide with a relocation either within your premises or to pastures new.

“We have very positive feedback from the end users regarding all the crews involved in the move. Indeed at a steering group meeting this week one of the senior scientist not only praised the move teams but also requested if the same teams could be used for the move into the CL2 building next year.”

“The Johnsons team worked well with our own internal project team to make the overall move a success. The main phase went without any significant issues, and this was a testament to the close management and supervision of the Johnsons team at both sites during the 3 days of the move.”

Mark Garrod, Redx Pharma

“We have a good working relationship and specifically use Johnsons as they are competitive, always turn up on time with the correct number of operatives, and their removal team is always courteous which matters especially when patients and our staff are affected.”

David Shepherd, Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust

“Johnsons Laboratory Logistics have been providing relocation services to us for a number of years now. They are competitive, reliable and trustworthy.”
