ANEW provides socially responsible and environmentally sustainable solutions to companies in need of cost and time saving alternatives regarding their corporate surplus furniture and materials. Items that can be resold are considered first, to lower the costs of labor, then items are identified for repurposing and matched to non-profits, public agencies and underserved communities. What is left is then recycled, thus avoiding landfill. Since its inception nine years ago, ANEW has established a national network of top, professional service provider companies and itself as a single-source, first-ever “take-back and report-back” solution. The organization coordinates the entire process from the decommission strategy, removal and stewardship of surplus. All projects include independent third-party review for verification of the project metrics for corporate annual reports. With a primary focus on strengthening communities, ANEW has served over 700 organizations in 20 countries.
To date, ANEW has diverted over 13 million pounds of materials from landfill.
