The University of Melbourne's Furniture and Equipment Re-use Service offers a range of workstations, storage solutions, and other items for sale at low or no cost, presenting a sustainable and economic alternative to purchasing new furniture or equipment for your office. It is available to University of Melbourne departments, faculties and affiliate organisations.
The University of Melbourne has already made substantial gains towards redeploying and reusing furniture. In July 2012, a pilot was undertaken by Campus Operations to identify and redeploy furniture and equipment within the University. Since that time, furniture redeployed has culminated in an estimated saving of more than $5M to the University on retail replacement value. 2015 Saw a massive $1.95M in savings!
If your department is looking for any furniture, has any unwanted furniture, or is planning to move soon, please contact: Equipment Reuse
