Stewardship Policy Page
Burgtec is proud to be one of the only Australian office furniture manufacturers to be able to offer our own Commercial 3 R’s (Reclaim – Recycle – Reprocess)* program for all Burgtec Australia manufactured workstations. We guarantee that all workstations reclaimed under this program will NOT GO TO LANDFILL.
Once recovered, the product will either be recycled back through our supply chain in materials such as melamine or fully recycled using one of our accredited recycling agents (ARA).
The potential value of this can be realized in two ways:
- The energy replacement value based on the amount of fossil fuel (coal, gas and diesel) displaced by the use of PEF; and
- The carbon and renewable energy benefits that may in turn be accrued via:
- • Carbon value from avoided fossil fuel use
- • Benefits from avoided emissions from landfill
- • Renewable Energy Certificates
All these processes are carried for Burgtec in Australia; no product will be shipped overseas for recycling or reprocessing.
The Burgtec Commercial 3 R’s take back program will be offered on a project by project basis.
We hope that in the near future, we will be able to help you, help us in diverting any commercial carpet from ending its life in landfill.
