Office Supplies Reuse Station
Do you have office/school supplies that you don't want anymore? Do you need office supplies, but would rather not spend the cash? Stop by the Environmental Studies/Sustainability Office Suite (the supplies are located in the closet across from V372F) from 8am-5pm, Monday through Friday, to drop off and pick up used supplies. It's a simple, sustainable way to get rid of the supplies you no longer need and find the supplies you want. Help Luther become a better steward of resources by:
Getting Rid of Supplies
Before tossing out perfectly usable items, bring them to the station and see if they can find a new home first. You can either put them in their properly labeled location or place them in the drop-off box underneath the counter next to the printer. Student workers will place items in their proper home.
Before buying new, see if the Office Supplies Reuse Station has it. Come anytime between 8 AM and 5 PM, Monday through Friday, and grab it if we've got it. No cost, no checking anything out, no hassles! Need something for home? Go ahead, take it. We don't care how it's used as long as it gives second life to a once dumpster-bound item.
Examples of What the Station Could Provide
- staplers/tape/hole punchers/scissors
- markers/pens/pencils (new and used)
- paper clips/other clips/tacks/magnets
- file folders
- paper trays
Remember, the more you give and the more you take, the more successful this project is!
CFL bulbs and rechargeable batteries are now being collected in the Office Reuse Station. For more information about recycling at Luther, visit the Recycling page.
CFLs cannot be thrown away due to hazardous chemical content. There is a labeled collection box in the closet across from V372F in the Environmental Studies/Sustainability Office Suite in Valders (The Office Supplies Reuse Station). CFL collection is for Luther students only. Faculty and staff are encouraged to take old CFL bulbs directly to Winneshiek County Recycling Center.
Sustainability recently added rechargeable battery collection. Boxes are labeled on the creme colored shelves, along with other items that you can reuse! Battery collection includes cell phones, AA, AAA, laptop batteries, and basically any other rechargeable battery.
