What to do when you need to empty 26,000 square meters of space, and you want to repurpose furniture and materials efficiently as well as minimize the amount of waste? The clear-out of our premises in Kytösuontie was a huge task. For example, we had to find a new home for dentist chairs and autopsy tables! The University has a long tradition of recirculating items, and for a lot of items, we found a new purpose in our own operations. Additionally, 1,000 pieces of furniture were sold, and more than 10 tons of furniture was donated to charity.
