Delta Recycling Program

Delta Installation Group is dedicated to doing everything we can to minimize additions to the solid waste stream.  Office Furniture generates a massive amount of excess material.  Your new furniture is shipped from the factory encased in styrofoam and plastic cushioning material, packed in cardboard boxes secured with metal or plastic straps, and transported on wooden pallets.  This is all necessary to protect the glass, metal, and wood finished that make your new furniture look so good.  Naturally, none of this material stays in your office after the furniture is delivered and installed.

In the "old days", all of this "trash" was just disposed of in land fills or incinerators - neither alternative was kind to our environment.  Today, we "Repurpose - Reuse - Recycle - Refinish - Restore" whenever possible.  Delta purchased our first cardboard baler over 20 years ago.  We have programs in place with local recycling companies to accept any materials that we cannot use in our own operations.  Delta recycles about 300 tons of cardboard, plastic, and styrofoam every year through these progams.  In addition, about 100 tons of aluminun, steel, and other metal from old furniture that can not be refurbished or reused is also collected and delivered to a local recycling plant from our warehouse each year.  Delivery pallets are reused in our warehouse operations or recycled when no longer in a useable condition.

Our subsidiary, Omega Trading Company, recycles and restores old Haworth systems furniture for resale.  Starting with old, worn out panels that would otherwise be thrown away, Omega completely disassembles all furniture components.  All the parts are inspected, cleaned, repaired or replaced as necessary, then reassembled and refinished to "like-new" condition.  Remanufactured workstations keep about 80% of the original furniture in use.  We recycle any materials that we can and use environmentally friendly paint and fabric in the remanufacturing process.  We use the old fabric as packing material.
