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

A brief description of the program:

The university has a Surplus Department, which processes all surplus property per State of Wisconsin and UW-Stout campus policies.
Goals include maximizing surplus operational benefits to UW-Stout campus departments, providing opportunities for reuse of surplus items by UW-Stout campus departments, providing opportunities for the general public to purchase surplus property at public sales, providing a centralized recycling location for all types of batteries and printer cartridges, being a responsible environmental steward for the campus by finding reuse and recycling markets for surplus property, and attempting to create a "zero" waste surplus operation.

The UW-Stout Surplus Store is open for public viewing and sales every Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
