Reusing is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to reach zero waste!
Since 2004, the Virtual Warehouse has redistributed and recycled over 720 tons of city-owned furniture, supplies, and equipment worth over $6 million. Reusing through the Virtual Warehouse saves money on purchasing new items, disposing of reusable materials, and supports San Francisco’s Zero Waste goal!
The Virtual Warehouse is an on-line system for City employees to submit and reuse gently used appliances, electronics, office furniture & supplies. If you need something, look here first before buying new. Items not used by City departments are offered to local non-profits and schools.
