OP-T2-42: Move-In Waste Reduction
|0.25 / 0.25||
Director of University Sustainability
Does the institution have a program to reduce residence hall move-in waste?:
A brief description of the program:
For freshmen, an early move-in program exists to help students orient themselves to on campus life. This program is called Boiler Gold Rush. During the move-in weekend for this program, Boiler Gold Rush leaders help new students move their belonging into the residence halls pointing out where to recycle cardboard and other recyclable wastes. In addition, both Residential Life staff and our service/cleaning crews are assisting parents and students with information regarding all the recycling opportunities for move in waste.
To handle this additional recycling waste 15- 20yd dumpsters are conveniently placed near move in locations at each residence hall.
