Stationery Reuse Centre


Stock up on stationery while promoting sustainability!

Volunteers at the Stationery Reuse Centre keep students well stocked on all their stationery needs and work towards a more sustainable campus.

The Stationery Reuse Centre is UNSW’s one stop (free) shop for once-loved and re-purposed pens, highlighters, rulers and everything else that you forget to shove in your pencil case.


Providing free stationery to students will make you everybody’s best friend, and the team are always looking for extra helpful hands to hand out pens and pencils!

Whether you’re a stationery addict or passionate about environmental sustainability, lend us a hand in manning Arc’s free recycled stationery centre.

develop your communication skills with other volunteers and stakeholders, plan events, manage stock, promote sustainability.

Volunteering at the Stationery Reuse Centre is also recognised on your Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS).
