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

A brief description of the program:

We have a “Goodwill Giving” program at the end of every academic school year. Each residence hall uses its main lounge/lobby as a second-hand drop-off site. Students are allowed to donate clothes, appliances, furniture, books, dishes and other miscellaneous items. These donation sites are run during the last weekend and throughout finals week and graduation. After commencement, there is a truck – arranged through Facility Services – that visits each of the lounges and delivers the items to Goodwill. In fact, the truck visits several times throughout the week due to the large amount that gets donated at the end of the year!
A separate move-out collection is held in order to collect discarded electronic materials.
