Reuse Center
ReUse Program


The University of Minnesota ReUse Program collects surplus office furniture, supplies, equipment and parts from throughout the Twin Cities Campus and makes them available to University departments or individuals for purchase. Some of the services the Reuse program performs are as follows ...

  • RELIEVES 250 University buildings of unwanted materials, fixtures and supplies.
  • REDISTRIBUTES furniture & equipment valued at over $200,000 to U of M departments each year.
  • RESELLS a never-ending variety of items to the general public each Thursday.
  • RECYCLES unwanted steel, aluminum, wood, cardboard & paper.
  • REDUCES campus construction waste that would otherwise end up at the landfill.


Hey! Check out our annual Pack & Give Back program! Students donate unwanted items when they move out, then we host a free store for students and local residents!
