Furniture & Electronic Re-Use and Recycling Scheme
Welcome to the Macquarie University furniture and electronic re-use and recycling scheme. As part of our commitment to sustainability, we have set up this scheme which will allow us to re-use office furniture wherever possible across campus.
Need a bigger bookcase? Or another filing cabinet? Or perhaps a visitor's chair? Macquarie staff can access the online catalogue and request an item from our store.
In a rush?
We will do our best to act promptly and efficiently to get your furniture to you (or from you) as soon as possible. This system has been set up using existing resources and has no dedicated staff members, so please be patient.
To find an item, simply scroll through our online catalogue.
Request an Item
Once you’ve browsed the catalogue, all you need to do to request an item is simply fill in the online request form.
Dispose of an Item
Have an item that needs a new home?
Just fill in an online customer service request form and we will organise to get it picked up from you.
Please note the following when disposing of an item:
- It is the responsibility of Faculty or Office to remove the item(s) being disposed of from the Assets Register. See the Assets Disposal Policy for details.

- Items going into the furniture store become part of the general pool, ie, you will lose ownership of it. We are not a storage facility.
- If you have e-Waste to dispose of it is the responsibility of the Faculty Head / Office Head to comply with Asset Data Deletion. More information is available here.
Unusable furniture and e-waste is recycled off-campus by external contractors.
