ChEM Reuse Program
The Chemical, Equipment, and Materials (ChEM) Reuse Program supports U-M labs and U-M’s waste reduction goal by enabling surplus chemicals, lab equipment, and materials to be used in other campus labs rather than being sent out for disposal.
The program is operated by the Office of Campus Sustainability in partnership with Environment, Health & Safety. Any U-M Ann Arbor lab can donate usable items or request items—for free!
You can browse the inventory online. The available items are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. We are currently not hosting in-person browsing.
- Chemicals: Go to “Reports” and look at “ChEM Reuse Program’s Chemical Inventory” for a list of chemicals we have available, then email requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Equipment and Materials: Browse inventory, make selections, and submit the form.
- You may also email requests and questions to email@example.com. We are happy to put requests on a “wishlist” if not currently in our inventory and contact you if it comes in.
