"---" indicates that no data was submitted for this field

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:

UVM runs the Office Supply Collection and Reuse (OSCAR) program. This free service run by the university's Recycling Office collects and redistributes office supplies, such as folders, envelops, binders, desk accessories and other small items, that are in good shape.

The Recycling Office is also encouraging the use of Freecycle, which would serve the same purpose as the OSCAR program, but managed online. UVM would receive the full 0.25 points for this credit.
