Are unused office items cluttering your space?

Post your used or overstocked office supplies here to be made available to other SUNY Potsdam administrative offices and faculty for re-use right here on our campus.

We all benefit when we reuse:

  • Save time: Check the postings before ordering new supplies – reusing something that is already here eliminates the need to find a source and then wait for your order to arrive.
  • Save $$$: Items reused between offices/departments are done so at no cost. Make your budget dollars go farther by reusing when possible.
  • Think Green: “Buying new” requires resources to manufacture, package, and ship. Reuse saves those resources, while also potentially keeping the reusable item out of the landfill.

How it works:

1. Identify unused office supplies & accessories (no phones, or computers) that you are willing to part with without charge to the prospective user. If there is a SUNY Potsdam decal/ownership tag on the item, the Property Control Coordinator (x2134) in the Physical Plant Office needs to be notified at the time a new “owner” claims the item.  Be sure to obtain your supervisor’s approval if required.

2. E-mail to reuse@potsdam.edu – include the description, quantity, and contact person and phone ext. (a photo of the item is optional).

3. We will post your items on this blog for the campus to view. Check this site before ordering and contact the listee directly to obtain the item you’re interested in. 

To see what is available, go to the gray box in the upper right hand corner of this page that says “Look here to see what is available” – select a category and browse away!

4. Let us know via e-mail to reuse@potsdam.edu when you’ve successfully reused your item(s) and we’ll remove the posting.

Can’t Find What You’re Looking For? 

Have us post your “WANTED” items!

Follow the same steps as above making sure you note the item as “wanted”.  We will posted your item under the “wanted” section and ask that you contact us when you have received the item or decide that you no longer want or need the item.

 

PLEASE NOTE: The purpose of this site is to facilitate the exchange of assets of SUNY Potsdam only, among faculty and staff of the college for use in the performance of their official job duties. All items exchanged remain the property of SUNY Potsdam.

Thank you.
