UWinnipeg Office Spring Cleaning!
It's that time of year - Spring has sprung! From April 18th - 29th, the University of Winnipeg Campus Sustainability Office will be hosting an Office Spring Cleaning initiative. We've setup a new 'storage depot' on the 3rd floor of the RCFE building for any staff and faculty interested in donating or re-using office materials on campus.
It's an open, give n' go type of setup; all we ask is that people make an effort to keep the space tidy and organized if they are depositing and/or withdrawing items, and ensure that all items are in working condition before being donated.
Please drop off smaller items directly at the at the Campus Sustainability Office (3rd Floor RCFE) or email email@example.com to request a pickup for larger collections.
