An enormous amount of waste often unfortunately ends up in the landfills when students move out of their school-year residences for the summer. In order to minimize waste, the Office of Sustainability set of Move-Out stations across campus where students could donate their no-longer-wanted items. This year, we collected 14,290 pounds of textiles, 719 pounds of food, as well as a significant amount of other donations in the form of e-waste, books, appliances, furniture, and miscellaneous items! That is very significant amount of items that will not be going straight into the landfills, as would have otherwise happened.
