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

A brief description of the program:

During new student move-in Bowdoin's student Eco-reps are present to encourage sustainable behavior and practices and answer questions on our Zero-Sort recycling system as well as other sustainability related questions the new students may have. Additional cardboard recycling dumpsters are also available during move-in as this period generates much higher levels of cardboard waste, and the normal recycling facilities can be overloaded.
