This group will be similar to "Freecycle" in that a UMBC department can advertise that they have office supplies or items that are no longer of use to them. The items will only be offered to another UMBC deparment, and will be available free of charge.
The idea is to use UMBC's supplies and resources to the maximum extent possible. This is an easy way for UMBC departments to save money because departments will be able to keep their budget costs down by not having to purchase something that is sitting useless in someone elses office. It also promotes a "green" environment for our campus, and prevents perfectly good items from going to a landfill.
