Equipment Recycle Program
What is this program?
As part of our Green Initiative the Department of Recreation and Wellness has an equipment recycling program. Weinstein Center members have the opportunity to purchase gently used weight and cardio equipment that would otherwise be removed from circulation; funds from the purchases will go towards new equipment.
Where can I see this equipment?
All equipment slated to go on sale will be marked in its current location prior to the sale. Equipment will be on display in the Weinstein Center Lobby the week of the sale.
