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

A brief description of the program:

Spring Cleaning is a program that has the goal of collecting unwanted but reusable items to be donated to different organizations. Spring Cleaning takes place in the residence halls during the week before the halls close for the year, so students - as they prepare to move out - may identify clothing, electronics, and other items that they no longer need or want and turn them in so they will continue to be used by others. In 2012, a total of 9,737 pounds of materials were donated by students and then given to local organizations. The Food Bank of Yolo County received 1,508 pounds of non-perishables and Goodwill received 8,229 pounds of clothing, linens, electronics and other items.
