Film Biz Recycling

Have you ever contemplated what happens when films and TV shows finish shooting and are suddenly left with a rococo set filled with couches, garden furniture, office desks and high-end kitchen appliances? A whole lot of unnecessary waste, that's what.

Enter Film Biz Recycling, a New York-based not-for-profit company dedicated to giving new homes to all the detritus of recently finished cinema, TV and theatre projects. You give them a call, they come down, ransack the place, give 60% of it to charity (so don't be alarmed if you see the underprivileged rocking the boat from The Life Aquatic) and sell the rest to early-stage media productions. We can't believe nobody has thought of it before.
