Space always seems to be an issue for files & storage in every office. I know in our department, we have numerous storage closets w/file cabinets FILLED w/ outdated office supplies (3.5 x 5 floppy disks, typewriter ribbons/correction ribbons, used binders, shelf organizers, etc). We try to recycle as much as we can, but can't use the outdated supplies anymore. I suggest that we get with local COSE, SBA companies, non-profit groups, public school administration, etc. and give them *free* dibs on these items; they have already been paid for and are now sitting doing nothing when they could be helping our community to prosper. This would also assist clean up in our buildings, utilize storage space efficiently and show our communities that we are not wasteful, but good stewards of their tax dollars.
