The Monash University Reuse Centre furniture reuse store was established in 2010 and since 2012 has reused over 18,000 items diverting 500+ tonnes of furniture and equipment from landfill. Monash faculties and departments are encouraged to donate surplus furniture to the centre rather than storing or throwing away. In turn the program also offers departments, staff, students and the public quality furniture at savings of between 60-90% off the recommended retail price.
