WashU Reuse Surplus Property Program


WashU has signed up for an exciting new software platform through Rheaply AxM that facilitates the internal recirculation of unwanted equipment, supplies and furniture.

This platform, WashU Reuse, is accessible by staff, faculty and students across departments and campuses and will support peer-to-peer sharing, enabling users to quickly find an item they need, and promotes re-homing unwanted items efficiently through the university.

The main goal for this program is to keep materials out of landfills and reduce the need for departments to buy new items when excellent options are already available. The result is better utilization of both financial resources and natural resources.
