Need an office chair, desk, table or lamp? How about a bookshelf or file cabinet? You can find these and more at the U of M Reuse Center, open to the public on Thursdays from 8:30 to 5:30 p.m.
The Reuse Center is the place that old U of M furniture and equipment goes to die – or to be re-born, cheap, to a new life in your office, family room or wherever. The warehouse is located at 883 29th Avenue SE in Minneapolis. For further questions contact the ReUse Program by phone at 612-626-9152 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
According to the Reuse Center’s website, it’s a great success as it:
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.
