Welcome to the University of Melbourne REUSE CENTRE website.
Commencing in 2012, a pilot programme was undertaken by P & CS to see if it was viable to have a fully organised reuse service on Campus.
Since that humble beginning, Melbourne University has become a leader in the sector for reusing its equipment, now saving over 150 metric tonnes from landfill per annum, and saving the University purse around $3M.
We take in all excess furniture and equipment and do our very best to rehouse them quickly and sustainably.
Feel free to use this site, and please read our FAQ section.
This is a cost neutral service, and can handle single item requests right up to project sized asset movement.
Items on this site come with descriptions which may include the following :
All items provided with a condition report:
Fair: Clear signs of wear, (eg. fabric faded) but serviceable.
Good: Used - may have signs of wear.
Excellent: Near new - may have signs of limited use.
We welcome your involvement in sustainable activity here at Melbourne University.
