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.”

“[ANEW] takes Surplus items and brings them back into the community instead of going to the landfills. The first truck load came to Ohkay Owingeh and 6 trucks later it is still happening and we are so grateful to Rose and all their staff that they have come in and just given their whole heart and soul.”
