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

A brief description of the program:

The Move-Out Madness project is an event directed toward both students on campus and the Bellingham community. It is a chance for people to come and exchange their items in order to keep renewable materials out of the landfill, and redirect them into the hands of other potential owners or to be recycled. This idea was created with the hope to show people how to recycle in a new, sustainable, and exciting way. Events such as these provide people with the opportunity to recycle unwanted items or take home new ones, take on a leadership role as Western students in our community, and make an effort to keep Bellingham a healthy and environmentally clean city. This type of project portrays a unique way to try and help people realize that even if their unwanted items are no longer needed, they can easily be circulated back to the community or recycled without being thrown in the trash.
