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

A brief description of the program:

Every year an e-mail is sent to campus departments encouraging them to clean out unwanted supplies and deliver them to a predetermined location. On a given date, offices who donated to the annual supply swap are permitted to enter this location and take anything they want free of charge. The following day departments who did not donate to the swap are then allowed to take anything left over.
There is also a secretaries listserv on which department secretaries can post surplus materials to be claimed by other departments.
Finally, additional surplus is put in "Attic and Cellar Days" which is a city-wide yard sale.
