Moving out of dorms and apartments for the summer can be hectic, but there are also some great opportunities to green the process. Webster's Sustainability Coalition, RHA, and Webster Recycling, in partnership with GoodWill, are offering several additional services this year to help make your move-out more environmentally-friendly.
In order to collect reusable items, Goodwill donation bins will be available in 5 locations from May 6-10. Fully labeled recycling and landfill containers will also be available. Volunteers will be available on a limited basis throughout the day.

Ways to Reduce Waste During Move-Out
→ Instead of using cardboard and styrofoam packaging to move items, consider using
plastic containers or storage bins that can be reused throughout the year.
→ Wrap fragile items in old newspaper and recycle the newspaper after use.
→ Consider giving your used items to friends or family who need them.
→ Never throw out clothing, shoes, or school supplies. Donate them!
