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

A brief description of the program:

We have an established surplus property function that includes a storage warehouse and trucks and crew to obtain surplus property from campus locations. Surplus property is held for one to two months during which time it can be returned to university use. If the property is not claimed, it is sold at either public auction or on a public website. We also have a re-use website called the HokieSwap is which employees can post free ads for either wanted items or for items available for internal redistribution.
