OP-T2-43: Move-Out Waste Reduction
Does the institution have a program to reduce residence hall move-out waste?:
A brief description of the program:
Diversion Excursion (DE) is annually hosted by University Housing and Food Services and AS Sustainability. The event aims to divert reusable and recyclable goods from the landfills; donating the goods to local charities while educating residents. DE tables, staffed with volunteers are located near each hall to collect the donations brought down by the residents. We collect non-perishable food items, clothing, books, office supplies, linens, and partially used shampoo, conditioner, soap, and laundry detergent, computers and more. This event is held the last two days of finals week. Over 20,000 lbs of material is recycled or donated to charity each year.
