About Institition Recycling Network

The Institition Recycling Network connects those in need with those who have surplus. We match the needs of charities and nonprofits throughout the world with surplus furnishings and equipment from schools, universities, corporations and other large organizations.  Our services provide a complete reuse solution for organizations who generate surplus and those who receive it.  IRN makes the match and manages the labor and logistics to move, load, and ship surplus to reusers.

Diverting surplus from the landfill is the environmentally sustainable and cost-effective solution that benefits communities around the world.
