Taxpayers don’t like seeing usable furnishings thrown away, but what do you do with the thousands of pieces of legacy furniture replaced during bond refurbishment projects? Its resale value is almost zero and district warehouses can’t accommodate such high volumes. The only sustainable alternative is charitable donation. That’s where IRN comes in.

IRN oversees logistics and site management to ensure a smooth project. Reuse is not only good for the environment, but improves the learning experience for children throughout the world.
