Great Stuff Exchange

The Great Stuff Exchange (GSX) is an office supplies giveaway program. PSPM collects items from departments that cannot use them anymore and makes them available for students, staff, and faculty – for free!

Source reduction is the prevention of waste before it is even created. It means avoiding unnecessary purchases and only purchasing items when truly necessary that are designed with durability, toxicity, and end of life disposal, or recycling, in mind. Source reduction is the #1 way to keep waste out of landfills and helps keep valuable resources in circulation.

When we cannot reduce, the next best thing is to reuse.  We can all promote reuse as a better alternative to recycling.  It is a smart, viable action that any person or department to take at UIC and at home. Reuse also saves your department and the university valuable financial and material resources.
