One of the most wasteful times of the year is when students move out of residence. Students lack the proper amount of time to put all their affairs in order. To make things easier follow this move-out guide to properly dispose of your unwanted items, while knowing they will be put to good use elsewhere.
Step 1: Plan ahead and consult your resources
Check to see what items are acceptable for donation at the Free Store and at the Food Bank (below).
Step 2: Dump and Run
All donations can be dropped off in the donation crates near the residence lobby.
Step 3: Be aware of recyclable products
For more information on what can be recycled, consult the recycling catalogue (Recyclopedia).
