Did you know that every week, office workers throw away 1.65 tonnes of BIC biros? At First Mile, we will always work towards reusing, repurposing and re-applying stationary where possible.

No matter how old or tatty your stationery may be, it could be in a great working condition for someone else. Tonnes of old pens, pencils, rubbers and rulers are wasted every year when they could be reused and repurposed.

Wondering how we recycle office supplies?

We sent items in good condition to a number of charities like Child Action and Small Steps Project, who then provide these supplies to children and adults who don’t have access to materials. Damaged or unusable stationery items get broken down to produce Green energy and further help power homes, schools and offices while working to save the planet.

By recycling your office supplies with First Mile, you’re working towards making a difference.
