Surplus Asset Management: Our Commitment to the Planet

We focus on sustainability goals that are concrete, measurable, and simple.

We recycle or repurpose 95% of everything we touch. Knowing how important it is for your company to meet its green goals as well, we provide you with carbon offset reporting upon project completion.

Sustainability is a core component of our services. We are committed to minimizing our environmental footprint and keeping our communities clean by acting responsibly for the benefit of our company, our clients, and the environment.

Our ZERO waste policy is based on three principles: REUSE, REDUCE and RECYCLE

  • REUSE: Every auction centers on keeping waste out of landfills. Materials are reused to stop waste at the source, and our showrooms and auctions repurpose thousands of items each year.
  • REDUCE: Our reduction efforts are aimed at conserving natural resources, reducing toxicity of waste, and minimizing waste disposal costs for our clients. We aim to minimize our trash dumpsters to one or less for each supermarket we work in.
  • RECYCLE: From printing our business cards on recycled paper, to using recycling bins throughout our corporate headquarters, to large-scale recycling at all job sites, our recycling efforts span the entire scope of our operations. In the field, we sort all items that cannot be reused – including metals, papers, plastic materials, and wood – and send them to local recycling yards.
