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

A brief description of the program:

Signs and instructions are placed near residence hall dumpsters for the cardboard drop during move-in (freshmen, transfers and returning students). During move-in, a person is designated to assist students and parents with cardboard pickup and collection efforts. We use this opportunity to inform students about our recycling program on campus. The program is very efficient:
• It reduces waste
• It encourages recycling
• It saves us resources – minimizes frequent pickups of dumpsters
