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

A brief description of the program:

All surplus property from the institution is required to be processed by Property Services at the end of its useful lifespan, including electronics, lab equipment, furniture, vehicles, etc. Re-usable items are sold back to campus customers and/or sold at public auctions (held quarterly). Items that are damaged and/or have no re-use value are deconstructed as needed so that components like scrap metal can be recycled rather than go to the landfill. 100% of surplus electronics are recycled, re-used on campus, or re-used by external purchasers.
