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

A brief description of the program:

The "Leave Green" campaign was the marketing effort to enhance the existing residence hall move out waste diversion program benefiting local, not-for-profit agencies. The Leave Green logo, title, and enhanced marketing materials were created in cooperation with a Hooper Sustainability Grant (awarded to undergraduate students Emily Goff and Melissa Phillips), NAU Residence Life, NAU Recycling, and the Merriam Powell Center for Environmental Research.

NAU Residence Life annually invites local non-profit agencies to submit applications to participate in this program. Past participants include Big Brothers/ Big Sisters, St. Mary's Food Bank, and the Northern Arizona Food Bank. The selected agencies are granted permission to place donation bins inside of every residence hall on campus to collect gently used clothing, household appliances, reusable furniture, unused school supplies, and non-perishable foods.
