Office furniture recovery in Québec: constraints and prospects for improvement from a circular perspective


The project will assess the system to recover and reclaim office furniture in Québec by evaluating initiatives, identifying stakeholders and creating an inventory of furniture types and their characteristics.

The obstacles and levers to the development of an office furniture recovery sector will also be identified.

National and international monitoring of the end-of-life management of office furniture and related business models will also be carried out.
