Giving Purpose is our slogan, one that we are proud to live up to every day. It applies in several ways to what we do at Out of Use:
Giving Purpose to products and materials by giving them a second life. Today's society is too quick to assume that something has become worthless, or 'waste'. And yet these products can still be of great value to others in our society. After a thorough check and refurbishment/upgrading of the collected materials, we at Out of Use seek a new destination and purpose for these products. If ultimately the product cannot be reused, the materials are recovered as far as possible through recycling into secondary raw materials. This way, too, non-reusable products can be given a new use.
Giving Purpose for all our team and all our our staff because through our activities we contribute to a noble purpose: a more sustainable future world. It is rewarding and meaningful as individuals and as a team to be able to work towards this together.
Out of Use has also chosen to make use of 13 sheltered workshops for dismantling tasks. These tasks bring work to these institutions, and they in turn fulfil a useful role and make a valued contribution to the work of Out of Use.
Last but not least, 'Giving Purpose' also has a social dimension: climate change has made us all aware of the need to use the earth's scarce resources responsibly. As an environmental company we are proud to play our part in a circular, sustainable economy and society.
