OP-T2-43: Move-Out Waste Reduction
University Energy Manager
Facilities Planning & Design
Does the institution have a program to reduce residence hall move-out waste?:
A brief description of the program:
On the Pleasantville Campus:
Each resident hall collects any unused, unopened food products to be donated to the local food bank.
During the 2011 Spring semester move out, we operated a trial recycling program of the electronic waste left during move out.
Students also piloted a "Trash to Treasure" program in 2010 where by move out items are collected, then sold at deep discount to incoming students in the fall.
