OSCAR: Office Supply Collection And Reuse Closet
OSCAR Closet is located in
Billings/Ira Allen Lecture Hall Building, down the long corridor past
the Employee Training and Development offices. This new
and improved OSCAR space has better shelving
and access making it easier for folks to drop off or pick up used
office supplies. (We plan to remain in this space for
at least until Billings Hall undergoes major renovation.)
What is OSCAR?
OSCAR stands for Office Supply Collection And Reuse. It refers
to a physical place where University departments and student clubs can
redistribute reusable office supplies
for others to use. OSCAR is a "self-service" program monitored by UVM
Recycling staff. Drop off items you don't want; or pickup items you can
use. Don't spend money on new office supplies until you
check out OSCAR.
OSCAR is a FREE service.
