Re-Use Opportunities


At the end of the Spring semester, the Recycling Department places boxes and collection bins for gently used items, such as clothing, books,  small working appliances, and non-perishible food items, in the common areas of the residence halls. These items are donated to the Salvation Army and the Student Food Pantry.  Since 2000, we have donated 235,980 lbs of various items!


If you are in need of moving boxes, we store what we come across in the Friday Alcove. Please feel free to take what you need, but please recycle them afterwards! 


If you have office supplies which would not fall under "Surplus," please leave them by our bins and mark them for recycling.  We will store the items until we hold a "Take it or Leave it" tour, in which the items are given back out to the campus community for free.
