The Teknion Divert program is a turnkey service
that provides the people and expertise to help our
customers divert furniture and other assets they no
longer need from landfill by providing them with the
opportunity to sell, donate, and/or recycle them.
Divert was established to help achieve Teknion’s and our clients’ goal of zero waste. Transparent and traceable, this program ensures our clients garner maximum financial and social benefit with minimum environmental impact to themselves and the communities in which they operate.
We accept a wide range of projects and will take
furniture and other assets from any manufacturer, even
if you are not buying Teknion moving forward.
