HCHB's Green Store

HCHB's Green Store: Open for Business!

What is a Green Store?

The Green Store is a place where you can pick up free supplies that your office needs, or where you can drop off excess, but still good, office supplies. The Green Store is internal recycling at work, is free, and will help stretch your supply budget. The store is staffed by student interns.

Items usually in stock include: binders; various-sized envelopes; legal paper; computer keyboard; file folders; computer monitor stands; transparency film; binder clips; rubber bands; tape dispensers; legal hanging folders; and labels.

If you have questions about the Green Store or if you have supplies you want to drop off, contact the Green Store at 2-3580 or gogreen@doc.gov

Location: HCHB Room 2508

Hours: Monday and Wednesday from 10:00 to 12:00.


Toner Cartridge Availability - Toner cartridge sale is on hold - Please contact the Green Store if there is a specific cartridge that you need.

To decrease its toner cartridge stock, the Green Store is advertising our toner cartridges in stock in groups before they are auctioned off.  Because we only have a limited quantity of each type of cartridge, each grouping of cartridges will only be available for a two-week period on a first-come, first-serve basis.  After the two-week period, they will be put aside for auction.  Our current group of cartridges are HP cartridges.

If you are interested in acquiring any of the listed cartridges, complete the Toner Cartridge Request Form and submit your request to gogreen@doc.gov with the subject line “toner cartridge request”.  The cartridges can either be picked up at the Green Store or delivered to your office.  The toner cartridges are only available for pick-up or delivery on Mondays and Wednesdays.  If picking up, include the day and time slot on your request form.  Pick-ups can be made between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm.  If requesting delivery, include the requested day, time slot, and location of the delivery on the form.  Please allow a week from your request for cartridge.


As part of the Green Store anniversary celebration, the team made a Green Store informational video, starring several of our colleagues from around the Department. Check it out! 4

To keep this concept going, we need your help. We need as many excess office supplies coming in as going out. So, help us by scheduling a field day (office clean out) for your office. Get your everyone involved. We'll take most any office supplies that are still usable.
