Surplus Furniture Recycling

Surplus Furniture

Tufts University maintains a furniture recycling program for internal departments on all three campuses. We are able to take gently-used (i.e. regiftable) furniture from Tufts affiliates, which we recycle or keep for internal redistribution. We are able to take desks, office chairs, workstations, podiums, shelves and storage units, and other office furniture. If you are an employee of a Tufts department which is planning to dispose of university-owned furniture, or an employee of a Tufts department who is seeking furniture for an office located on university property, please contact Dawn Quirk, Waste Management Coordinator, at

If your office has university-owned electronics (computers, lamps, refrigerators, printers, copiers, etc.) which need to be recycled, please fill out a work order through the online IDR system.
