Does the institution have a surplus department or formal office supplies exchange program that facilitates reuse of materials?:

A brief description of the program:

GW's Reuse Program continues to grow both internally and externally. We distribute office supplies throughout the university in an effort to replenish outdated materials, divert materials from landfills, and be fiscally sustainable.

Currently, the university is exploring the implementation of a campus-wide policy that would require all users to first obtain materials from the exchange program prior to procuring materials from an outside vendor.

Any materials not kept within the university are donated to local charities and non-profits as a means to support their missions and better the realities of those in need.
