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

A brief description of the program:
During move-out all students (both on campus and off) are encouraged via email, signage, facebook, and banners to divert their unwanted items to a program called Sharefest Oxford. Every year during a "ShareFest" event thousands of pounds of materials are collected by volunteers and either given directly to social service agencies or sold by the local Family Resource Center to benefit their social services. On campus participation is facilitated by staff in the Office of Residence Life.
