Do you have office supplies that you or others in your office aren’t using? Don’t trash them. “Freecycle” them in the Non-exempt Staff Council’s Office Supply Swap.

Here’s how to participate:

  1. Bring new or gently used general office supplies to Room 207, Anderson Athletic and Recreation Center, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2. They must be UST office supplies and not supplies from your home.
  2. Visit the AARC Lobby to see what others have dropped off and pick up office supplies for yourself between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 3, and Thursday, Oct. 4. You do not need to have contributed supplies to participate.

Here are a few suggestions of the type of office supplies event organizers are looking for. Supplies must be in good working condition.

  • Pens
  • Paper: colored, card stock
  • Manila folders
  • Hanging folders
  • Three-ring notebooks
  • Labels
  • Paper clips/binder clips
  • Markers
  • Small desk-storage holders
  • Staplers and staples
  • Tape dispensers and tape
  • Shelving

Items that cannot be accepted:

Now is a perfect time to clean out your work rooms, and help support the environment and the work of the UST Recycling Team.
