OP-T2-38: Materials Exchange
Coordinator of Stewardship & Sustainability
Does the institution have a surplus department or formal office supplies exchange program that facilitates reuse of materials?:
A brief description of the program:
Taylor employees are encouraged to share and reuse materials whenever possible. To facilitate this the Facilities Services department is responsible for collecting, storing, and redistributing used office furniture. A large pole-barn is designated specifically as "campus storage" for this purpose. Unwanted equipment is periodically sold to employees and community members.
The IT department also re-purposes and/or rebuilds discarded computer equipment for departments with less stringent demands whenever possible.
