Our Sustainability Efforts

Purdue University’s Warehouse & Surplus Store “GREEN Program”
• Redistribute assets within the University
• Generate revenue through sale of merchandise to the general public
• Reduce landfill costs through sale of merchandise

E-waste has become a major concern to the University over the past several years. University Warehouse and Surplus has made a huge impact with reducing the amount of waste ending up in local landfills.
• Approximately 5000 pounds of power cords that are cut off from machines and recycled.
• Hard drives, circuit boards, aluminum, memory sticks, and metal cases are also recycled.

Recycle, Reduce, and Reuse Efforts
We have also hepled with reducing the amount of waste in local landfills by 100's of desks, chairs, filing cabinets, and other university surplus furnishings are sold through the Surplus Store for re-use and keep from landfills.

Hard Drive Shredderhard drive shredder
When it comes to sustainability, the Warehouse & Surplus Store continues its quest to be a leader within the university and local communities. Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle has been the practice of the Warehouse & Surplus Store since the mid 1960’s. A recent collaboration between the Warehouse & Surplus Store and REM has reduced our computer e-waste from 76,000 lbs. per year to 0 lbs. per year. The purchase of a new state of the art hard drive shredder will not only guarantee the security of the University’s electronic media, it will also reduce hard drive e-waste and turn a product that once cost the university to dispose of, into a recyclable product. The University Warehouse & Surplus Store sold 350,000 lbs. of desks, chairs, filing cabinets, and other end of use items that otherwise may have ended up in the landfill.

Warehouse & Surplus Store also sells refurbished computers, flat screen and VGA monitors. By selling these items, Warehouse & Surplus Store has been able to return over $197,745.00 directly back to owning department’s accounts.
