Total Reuse Join The FRN

on Monday, 08 June 2015. Posted in News

Total Reuse are proud to announce that they are now members of the Furniture Reuse Network (FRN) helping to alleviate poverty and tackle climate change.

The Furniture Reuse Network supports over 300 charities and social enterprises to relieve poverty and reduce waste by promoting the reuse of essential household furniture and electrical appliances to help those in need helping over 1 million households every year.

With its national network of Approved Re-use Centres (ARC) the FRN are able to give public and private sector partners assurance of service including to such household names as IKEA, John Lewis Partnership, Next and Littlewoods.

To achieve ARC status Total Reuse have had to undergo a rigorous audit to meet the sector's one and only certification register, (well done to everyone and thanks Harvey). FRN's reuse certification and registration system is based on ISO principles plus operational standards and compliance specific to reuse operators.

The auditing and certification covers Management Systems for Quality, Environmental and Health and Safety and ensure that certified re-users have the competence, resources and management systems to supply a high quality service and product consistency to partners, suppliers and the final customer reusing the product.
