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

A brief description of the program:
Program is coordinated by Sister Carla Kovack - Campus Ministry. In the end of the academic year, a group of students, normally, from the Residential Advisory group, collect the waste from the dorms, bring it to a central place - within the University boundaries, sort the material, and distribute it at different local non-profit organizations, such as home shelters. Each year they divert around 60-100 cubic yards of unwanted materials which includes blankets, bedspreads, cleaning supplies, food, books, school supplies, microwaves, fridges and others.
