  • 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.
