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

A brief description of the program:

The Office of Sustainability has developed a program in which students moving out of their dorms who no longer want their good quality/reusable dorm items donate them to the sustainable move-out program. Items collected during move-out are sold back at a significantly cheaper price to students moving in during the following semester. Funds collected during this program go towards sustainability projects on campus. Over 14,000 pounds of clothing alone was recycled and donated to Big Brothers Big Sister. We also filled a 40 foot by 8ft by 8 ft container of dorm essentials.
