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

A brief description of the program:

A new Move-Out program has been instituted this year which provided a variety of outlets for students to reduce their waste upon moving out of their residences. The outlets included: 1) Donation boxes on every residential floor specifically for clothes, school supplies, shoes, and non-perishable food. These boxes were be collected and donated to Catholic Relief Services. 2) E-Waste bins on every first-year floor for electronic waste such as computers, TVs, printers, stereos, and cellphones. These bins were be collected and recycled properly instead of being landfilled. 3) Large metal dumpsters for clean metal items such as futon frames, aluminum, steel, etc. These dumpsters were taken to a local scrap recycler.
