Reducing waste in the retail sector

The Problem

The retail sector manages large amounts of property and those properties often need to be refurbished and refitted. The fittings and fixtures that come out of these refurbishments often become surplus items with no place to go. The items might include:

  • Mannequins
  • Pedestals and bases
  • Display cases
  • Clothing racks
  • Storage cabinets
 

The Solution

Many of the items that are no longer needed by retailers could be of use to charities, charity shops or small independent boutiques. Retailers could also make a social impact with surplus product instead of sending it to landfill or incineration.
