The Office of Sustainability created an online surplus property exchange to help staff find homes for unwanted equipment. The site functions much like Craigslist, but only supports UO staff and UO-owned property. This program was transferred to the Business Affairs Office which has maintained and improved it over the last several years. Reuse Office Supply Exchange (ROSE) and the Surplus Furniture Exchange (includes information on furniture and e-waste disposal for nonworking items) are other reuse programs available on campus that were created and are operated by other campus units.
