ReUse within the U Too!

This tip comes to us from our colleague Debbie Hanson (National Center on Educational Outcomes), in response to an earlier Green Tip on donating office supplies to local schools. "Although the public schools are a worthy cause, it's more cost efficient to keep extra office supplies within the University system. The University Reuse Program accepts used office supplies to be redistributed to other University departments at no cost. I've used them myself many times for such items as manila folders, green hanging folders, accordion folders, and many other items. You can send items to them via campus mail, or if you have large quantities you can call them to arrange a pickup (see ReUse Center for more information). Also, if you need more campus envelopes and don't want to pay for them by ordering them new from U Stores, you can call Campus Mail at 4-8803 and ask them to send you used ones." Thanks for the tip Debbie!
