The role of libraries is evolving. No longer are they merely repositories for books; they…
Recycling is one of the most important ways to be environmentally friendly, it is usually the first lesson we teach children at school so they can contribute to taking care of our environment.
Although at education facilities recycling materials such as paper, plastic, glass, and cans are common, but there are also various ways to recycle old primary and high school classroom furniture as well.
It is important to understand what you can do with old classroom furniture that is still in a usable condition. Here is how we suggest you recycle your classroom furniture.
Donate to charity
If you are upgrading your classroom furniture but the old items you have are still in good condition, consider donating it. There are many charities such as Vinnies and the Salvation Army that you can contact to organise a pick up, otherwise you can drop the furniture off to the stores location.
Alternatively, it is also a good idea to contact your education furniture supplier and ask if they recycle or donate old classroom furniture through Australian not for profit commissions or charities.
Recycle using environmentally friendly methods
Another great way to recycle classroom furniture is to use an environmentally friendly rubbish disposal. If the classroom furniture is made of wood, metal, or any other recyclable materials, you can take it to the nearest community recycling facility or the large recycling bin.
Refurbish your classroom furniture
Before deciding to get rid of your high school or primary classroom furniture, consider giving your furniture a brand-new look by refurbishing it. You can use your imagination to turn old furniture into something new and innovative. For inspiration you can also look at sites like Pinterest for tutorials on how to turn your furniture into beautiful new pieces.
