Since 2005, ANEW has been providing businesses with sustainable solutions that repurpose and steward their surplus office furniture, fixtures and equipment to local organizations and public service agencies. Our commitment to Surplus Stewardship™ strengthens communities, reduces the amount of waste in our landfills, and helps businesses meet their social and environmental responsibility objectives.
Working together, Toyota & ANEW create a sustainable Surplus Stewardship™ solution. Over 50 local community organizations benefit from the partnership.
Toyota and ANEW team up to decommission the long-time Toyota headquarters in Torrance, CA for their relocation to Plano, TX. Working with ANEW, Toyota is able to maintain and exceed their sustainability and community outreach goals.

We are doing what’s right.
ANEW educates through action by raising awareness about the issues regarding landfill and construction & demolition waste, the largest component of the waste stream. Our practice of Surplus Stewardship™ diverts items from landfill and back to the community. Surplus Stewardship™ furthers corporate citizenship, social responsibility and evironmental sustainability. Our Sponsors enable us to continue doing our good work!
“Nearly ten years ago, Knoll and ANEW came together to form Full Circle, which was an industry first. Not only did we establish new industry standards for environmental responsibility, we made a very positive impact on major corporations in North America. We also made an impact on the lives of many of the recipients of the products that would normally go to a landfill; they ended up enhancing people’s lives. It’s been a wonderful partnership, and we look forward to the future.”
