Office Supply Reuse Days

Do you have pens, file folders, staplers or other gently-used office supplies you don’t need? 

Or maybe you’re someone who needs more office supplies? 

This event is for you!

Each summer, the Office of Campus Sustainability and Waste Management Services host an office supply reuse event to help ensure that gently-used office supplies are reused instead of landfilled. With the support of Property Disposition, this is an opportunity for U-M departments to clear out unneeded items while making them available for FREE to other U-M units and local non-profits.

I have extra office supplies

Pick-up is available on designated dates provided that you email by June 21, 2019 indicating your intent to participate. 

Waste Management Services crews will collect the supplies from loading docks and dumpster areas on:

  • June 26, 2019 (North and Medical Campuses)
  • June 27, 2019 (South and Central Campuses) 

All donated supplies must be boxed up, labeled “Office Supplies” and taken to your building’s loading dock or dumpster area by 8:00 am on your collection day.

Acceptable items: gently-used and new office supplies 

Furniture, electronics or anything broken will not be accepted.
