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

A brief description of the program:

Georgia Tech has had a Move-Out Program since 1998. When students move out of their dorms and sorority/fraternity houses in the spring, they leave behind thousands of pounds of food, clothes and household items that they no longer need. Students also generate a significant amount of recyclable materials, such as office paper, as they clean out their rooms. Our Move-out program students with a sustainable alternative to throwing these items away, by donating them to local charities,including the Atlanta Community Food Bank, the Day Shelter for Women and Children, and the Atlanta Union Mission
