Reuse Event in the Hub

The next Reuse Event is on Wednesday 11 March 2020

Reuse Events

Donate your excess stationery items so they can be redistributed to students.

Reusing items - as opposed to disposing of or recycling them - diverts waste from landfill, allows quality products to be used to their full extent, saves you money and reduces greenhouse gases produced through the harvesting of new raw materials and production of new items.

**Only University of Adelaide items are accepted.

How do I donate items?

Box up your excess quality University of Adelaide stationery with a lid.


  • Two-ring folders
  • Up to 10 lever-arch folders per area
  • Plastic sleeves & paper dividers
  • Pens, textas & writing utensils
  • Scissors, staplers & calculators
  • Bulldog & paper clips

Email us to let us know what you have and how many boxes you are donating. We will send through instructions on what to do next.

Not accepted:

  • Damaged goods
  • 3 and 4-ring folders
  • Electrical items
  • Binding materials
  • Filing cabinet dividers
  • Mouse mats
  • Lanyards

End of semester (sustainable) clean out

The end of semester can leave areas with a lot of extra waste, including models, stationery, documents and other assorted items. Don't just dump it! Donate it or recycle it right.
