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

A brief description of the program:

The Surplus Property Office (SPO) at the University of Arizona is responsible for redistributing materials such as furniture, computers, and vehicles to other departments on campus. When departments are finished with their materials SPO picks up the property and stores it in a warehouse near campus and catalogs the items online. The items can be purchased by other departments with delivery of the item to the department being free. If items are not reused by another department, the items are disposed to the public via auction to the public every second and fourth Tuesday of every month.
