OP-T2-43: Move-Out Waste Reduction
UVM Recycling/Solid Waste Office
Does the institution have a program to reduce residence hall move-out waste?:
A brief description of the program:
Similar to the move-in program, UVM has a program to reduce waste during end-of-year residence hall move-out. In the last week of school, students are encouraged to donate their unwanted possessions including clothing, food, toiletries and other household items.
During finals week, staff from UVM’s Recycling & Waste Management office, along with Eco-Reps, set up big bins in the main lobby of residence halls where students can drop off donations. The donated materials are then picked up by Vermont Food Bank and other community-based non-profit organizations.
