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!

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

Email by October 1 if you would like to contribute excess office supplies.

Acceptable items: gently-used and new office supplies 

Furniture, electronics or anything broken will not be accepted. 

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.
