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

A brief description of the program:

In an effort to divert solid waste from the landfills, unwanted items are collected by CSU"s Integrated Solid Waste Department and the Live Green Team during residence hall move out. Items collected include clothing, shoes, towels, dishes, lamps, desks, couches, coffee pots, plants, and more. The items are donated to local charities meet the needs of the Fort Collins community. This program is called "Leave it Behind".

There are currently plans to partner with the City to make Leave it Behind available to off campus students as well.
