Office Supply Graphic


The Office of Sustainability is partnering with Mail Services to launch the Office Supply Exchange, a pilot program designed to facilitate the recirculation of useful office materials. The program serves as a centralized process for donating and receiving office supplies and is open to employees on all WashU campuses with access to internal mail circulation routes.

Donate – Moving office spaces? Did someone leave or retire from their position? Doing some seasonal cleaning? Don’t let unused office supplies pile up!

  • Send commonly used office supplies (listed below) via campus mail: CB 1043; Attn: Laurie Brady.
  • For large quantities, please contact Laurie in advance to confirm the ability to accept the materials.

Surplus items will be donated to local non-profits and schools. 

Receive – Looking for some office supplies? Before buying new, put in a request via email for any of the items we collect – please specify quantities. If we have them (no guarantees!), we will send them to you at no charge.

Exchange Supplies:

  • binders
  • office paper
  • paper clips
  • memo pads & sticky notes
  • pens & pencils
  • staples and staplers
  • tape and tape dispensers
  • file folders (can be used, but good condition)
  • envelops (plain and intra-office)
  • mailing labels
  • rubber bands
  • push pins
  • unopened ink cartridges
  • desk organizers
  • small office lamps
  • keyboards
  • computer mice & speakers
  • power cords

All items should be in good working order. Please separate materials (for example, bag paper clips and rubberbands, rather than sending a mixed bag).
