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:

Office supplies such as furniture, is handled by Campus Services. Items that are still useful but no longer needed by a department are stored until they are requested by other departments. Each year campus holds a surplus sale that is open to the public to clear out items that have not been claimed by other departments. Also, computing services collects replaced computing equipment and will reuse systems in secondary locations as needed. Used equpment is kept on hand as spares in the event that systems in primary locations fail, as systems to be assigned to adjunct faculty, and for any other potential needs. once systems are no longer usable, they are recycled.
