Does the institution have a program to reduce residence hall move-out waste?:

A brief description of the program:

During moveout collection points are made available in the residence halls for common recyclables as well as clothing, electronics, books food and other reusable items.

These are collected by facilities staff and transported to a variety of outlets both internally and externally. Students have started a store for reused clothing and monies from that are donated to charity. Phones are collected and given to the local police department that uses them for crime victims that cant afford them but need the ability to communicate. Some electronics are collected and resold and other electrical items are taken to the local recycling centers. Extra packaged foods are collected and donated to a local church.
