Don’t know what to do with old office furniture?

Don’t know what to do with old office furniture?

As we head into the New Year, many business owners and office managers may be thinking about where their business will be in 2022. Thoughts about growth and expansion, refocusing and streamlining, or even rationalizing and downsizing are in order. The pandemic has definitely taught us that we need to be adaptable and flexible – pivoting as required - in order to be resilient and survive in a challenging business environment.

A change in your business environment may mean an office move to a larger or smaller location. Whatever the reason for your commercial move may be, it is a great opportunity to freshen up or upgrade your office furniture.

What do you do with the old office furniture you don’t want or need anymore?

Every office has some older office furniture that is broken or needs to be repaired. You know that back room that serves as an office chair cemetery? Yes, we’re talking about that room where all the unwanted, no longer needed, damaged furniture or office equipment ends up in. That room that no one goes in at night where the old computer cables seem to move on their own…

Moving your office is the perfect opportunity to clear out that room: out with the old and in with the new! But what to do with all those unwanted items?

Ways to Dispose of Unwanted Office Furniture and Equipment

These days, it’s all about the 3Rs – Reuse, Reduce, Recycle – so just bringing old office equipment to the dump should be a last resort solution. There are many ways you can dispose of your unwanted equipment and old office furniture, and maybe help others and the environment at the same time too.

Donate to Charity

Unwanted office furniture that is still in good condition can be donated to a charity or a not-for-profit organization. That way you can help others and get a tax credit for a charitable donation at the same time. It also avoids sending things to the dump. It’s a win-win-win!


Some unwanted office furniture may be a bit damaged or have broken parts. There are a number of businesses that offer refurbishing services to bring the furniture back into top shape and then resell it at competitive prices. Your old office partitions may be reused by another company looking to expand their office, extending their useful life. It can also contribute to LEED credits for those trying to achieve LEED certification.

In the case of office equipment and electronics, there are businesses that can repair and refurbish, or break down and recycle all or most of the equipment and components. Your local municipality may also be able to collect your electronics and office machines, sometimes even at no cost to you.


If the unwanted items are still in good shape and are still usable, consider selling them online on Kijiji or through an auction. You get a bit of money back to help with moving your office, and the items don’t end up as waste at the dump.
