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

A brief description of the program:

Trash to Treasure is one of the flagship programs run by the UT Campus Environmental Center, which is sponsored by Campus Planning and Facilities Management. Each year, CEC works with the University Residence Hall Association to put collection bins in some residence halls (the volume from all halls is too great for a non-professional group to handle). CEC typically diverts 3-4 tons of clothing and small household items from the landfill in this program. Trash to Treasure has been running for seven years, since 2004.
