OP-T2-43: Move-Out Waste Reduction
Environmental Sustainability Manager
Does the institution have a program to reduce residence hall move-out waste?:
A brief description of the program:
The university partners with local charitable organizations to capture about 30 tons of furniture, clothing, kitchen supplies, books, electronics, bedding, and other housewares during the move out period each spring. Because we have such a large inventory of single family homes and duplexes in our university housing stock, students often have a large quantity of usable housewares and furniture they can not or do not wish to take with them. We provide drop-off locations and a pick-up service to divert this material from dumpsters.
