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

A brief description of the program:

In June 2012 SOU partnered with the Goodwill to divert move-out waste from the landfill through the first annual Raider Reclamation event. Several stations were set up in each residence hall for students to drop off their unwanted reusable/recyclable items during the move-out. Volunteers worked at the stations to sort items into the appropriate bins. Materials that could be resold or recycled (textiles, electronics, books, etc.) were donated to the Goodwill, helping to create opportunities for local people facing hardships to receive education, training, and career services. Other recyclables and garbage were sorted at SOU's Recycling Center.
