A brief description of the program:

Georgia Tech's Move-in Recycling Program enables students to recycle their moving boxes by setting up temporary recycling sites throughout the residential areas of campus during the week of move-in. During the fall 2011 student move-in, 14,535 pounds of cardboard were collected in just one week.

Housing, student volunteers, and Recycling provide this service to campus.
