In 2007 the Purchasing Department at Capilano University began investigating its standard method for disposal of surplus classroom tables with an eye to finding a more environmentally responsible way to efficiently dispose of tables no longer in 'good enough' repair to remain in use.
Since then, Capilano University has moved from disposal of surplus tables into the landfill,
tables refurbishing included as standard business operations
pilot test: work directly with table manufacturer/supplier try to refurbish 14 classroom tables
dismantling, separation and recycling of metal and wood materials
