Equipment Reuse Program

At UCSF, we believe in reducing waste and reusing what we can. In partnership with Information Technology (IT) and Facilities Services (FS), we provide repurposed office equipment that is in used but good condition to help employees save money in setting up onsite or remote workstations. Types of equipment and availability vary throughout the year. Please read carefully through the details below. 

Types of equipment

Computer Peripherals (e.g. display monitors, keyboards, mice)
Availability and supply depend on the frequency of e-waste pickups from IT and FS. If items are not in stock, we maintain an ongoing, first come first serve waitlist. Please fill out the Agreement & Request Form below to be added to the waitlist.

Pickup will be scheduled on a regular basis as items become available. Pickup is at Mission Bay - Mission Hall 6400 unless notified otherwise. 

Due to regulations on e-waste recycling, all electronic items must be returned to UCSF at the end of its life or when recipient is no longer employed by UCSF. 

Office Furniture (e.g. chairs, desks, cabinets)
Availability and supply depend on office- or building-wide moveout events. These events will be announced as broadly as possible: through this webpage, the sustainability email listserv, and other UCSF-wide listservs. 

For each furniture event, we will post an inventory and “Interest Form” for you to submit. If we confirm your item’s availability, you will still need to complete the Agreement & Request form prior to pickup. 

Because we don’t have the capability to store furniture or other large items, the items must be picked up shortly after announcement. Pickup location varies depending on where the furniturehas been left by previous owners. 

Furniture does not need to be returned to UCSF.
