Furniture waste, or f-waste as the growing issue has been termed, affects businesses of all kinds. Offices relocate. Branches downsize or close. People come and go. Needs change. And every once in a while, the marketing department leads a rebranding effort that modernizes your no-longer-of-this-decade space.
