UO REUSABLE OFFICE SUPPLY EXCHANGE
Just a reminder:
The Campus Zero Waste Program has a great reuse and recycling opportunity for campus departments and student groups. The campus ROSE (reusable office supply exchange) is available on a self serve basis for dropping off or finding reused office supplies that you no longer need, or that someone else could use. It’s simple:
- drop off what you don’t need and we’ll shelve it
- come and look for things for your office prior to purchasing
ROSE has been operating for over 20 years and has saved the university resources and money. The Program documents replacement costs for items taken from the exchange and we average about $20,000/year in savings in office supplies alone. Please join us in this great opportunity.
Here’s how it works:
ALSO OPEN TO STUDENT GROUPS!!!!
(**THE ROOM IS NOT AVAILABLE BETWEEN 12-1PM, PLEASE PLAN AHEAD!)
REUSABLE OFFICE SUPPLY EXCHANGE
This wonderful self-service program is a place for you to bring all those surplus supplies lying around your office that you know someone on campus must be able to use. It’s also a place to find usable items that you need for your office FREE, no strings attached, saving all kinds of money and time on supply ordering for your department.
This program is available to all faculty, staff, administrators, GTF’s, and student groups. Come on in and check it out before you make that next office supply order.*
WHERE: 182 PLC
This service is conveniently located in a room on the North end of 180 PLC. It has its own entrance so you will never disturb a class. The light switch is outside the door on the left.
You can access the key via the English department’s regular office hours (they’re closed from 12-1). The English department is located on the first floor of PLC. Bring reusable items you no longer need and set them in the designated area. We will shelve the incoming items for you. Help yourself to the items you need. Use the log book to record what and how much you took. It’s that simple. Appropriate items for R.O.S.E. may include: pens, pencils, manila folders, small equipment such as calculators, stackers, floppy discs, notebooks, staplers or whatever you’ve got. Just make sure that all items are in working order.
The room is ready and waiting for your business. Do some spring cleaning and reclaim that shelving space in your office, or finally replace those scissors or stapler that has been missing for two months. All of us have a need for something, and we all have items that we can’t use, but someone else can.
*Student group members, please show student ID.
