Unwanted office supplies looking for new home

Posted By on Thu, Jan 26, 2012 at 10:47 AM

Some offices have large copiers with a million trap doors that seemingly lead to an office machine version of Narnia. They've since replaced this old copy machine with a newer version that spits out copies at lightspeed; however, like any sturdy, reliable machine, old Narnia still works.

The city of Colorado Springs sees this as an opportunity to recycle. On Feb. 6, the city's holding its annual supply-swap, Supply-O-Grab.

Local businesses are encouraged to clean out their supply closets and bring their working office items to the City Administration Building (30 S. Nevada Ave., #102) on Feb. 3 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Nonprofits (with proof of nonprofit status) are then invited to come by from 1:30 to 4 p.m. on Feb. 6 and peruse the old supplies and take what they need.

According to the City's website, common items include 3-ring binders, printer cartridges, typewriters, overhead projectors, and microfiche machines among other things. (You never know when nostalgia may hit and need to hear the satisfying "click click click DING" of an old typewriter.)

In all seriousness though, clear some much-needed space in your office and let someone else benefit from it by participating in Supply-O-Grab.
