Furniture Sourcing, Shredding Services & Toner Recycling

Office Furniture & Chairs

Over time, a line of HON chairs have been identified for their comfort, adjust-ability, aesthetics and construction with sustainable materials.  Samples of those identified chair styles are stored in Procurement for faculty and staff "test runs."  Make arrangements to visit Procurement to try out the chairs and decide on your preference.  Your selection will then be delivered to your office and adjusted to your body type by our office supply representative, for a two-week trial.  Once you have selected the fabric and chair style, a quote will be forwarded to you so that you may request approval from your supervisor to purchase the chair.  Standard lead (delivery) times for these chairs is about 4 weeks from the date of the order.

If you are interested in purchasing new furniture or adding to your existing furniture, please contact Procurement for a consultation on available products, and supplier quotes. If you are interested in reviewing any used surplus furniture, please contact Sabrina Shepard in Facilities.

Shredding Services

Lemay provides shredding services on campus the second Tuesday of each month. We also have several additional empty bins that you may request from Procurement either by phone, 253.879.2731 or 253.879.3519, or by emailing procurement@pugetsound.edu. When your current bin is full and you need a replacement, Procurement partners with Facilities Setups and Moves to pickup and replace each bin. You may also arrange for pickup and replacement by sending a work order request to Facilities.

Toner Cartridge Recycling

We currently have an HP toners and cartridge recycling program in place on campus.  Bring your HP toners and cartridges to the mail room, and they are delivered to Procurement for shipment to HP Purchase Edge.   Procurement coordinates with Technology Services to redeem points we receive for each toner cartridge for new HP printers. To date, several printers have been "procured" at no charge just for recycling toner cartridges!
