Single-stream recycling is all over campus. Pre- and post-consumer waste composting is in all dining halls and bins are located at the student center. Paper is reused at the copy center to make single-sided notepads. Move-out has Goodwill donation bins in every dorm and is picked up four times as students leave campus for the summer. The Bookstore collects and resells or donates old text books.
