Thank you for seeking a reuse/repurpose option for your surplus property. WashU offices on any campus can request a pick up by Campus Mail Services for materials that meet the criteria below. If materials being donated exceed the size or quantity Campus Mail is equipped to move, a move request may be required at the owner’s expense.

The Circularity Center is a WashU program with a physical location on WashU’s north campus. The virtual reuse platform, WashU Reuse, is also available and encouraged for direct exchanges between offices/departments across the university.

The Circularity Center is operating as a pilot, lanching in May 2022, funded through the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor for Administration. From April – September, the Circularity Center operates Share Our Stuff, a program that collects and processes materials donated from students moving out of on-campus and off-campus housing, and makes the materials available for reuse to other students moving into housing over the summer and fall. From October – April, the Circularity Center is available as a resource for offices, labs, and departments looking for lightly-use office supplies, equipment, electronics and furniture.

Due to space restrictions, the Circularity Center can only accept items listed in the catagories below, which is informed by the reuse outlets during the given time period. For recycling, reuse, donation and disposal of other items, you can view our guides and resources here.
