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

A brief description of the program:
The process begins prior to move-in when residents are contacted via email and provided suggestions of items to bring or not to bring. The website also provides the same information. They are encouraged to consider what they really need for their room and reduce the amount of items brought and the associated packaging. During the move-in process, residents are directed through signage to place cardboard in recycling bins. Residence Life staff are also provided with training to direct residents and their families on where they can place cardboard and recyclable packaging. Each room is also provided with its own recycling bin and a magnet is placed on the refrigerator providing instructions with how and what to recycle.
