Donate reusable items to ninth annual end-of-year clothing drive for charity
From Bob Douglas, Coordinator
Recycling and Central Receiving
The annual campus exodus is starting to gear up. While packing for the move, many reusable items sometimes get discarded. If it’s reusable and clean, please recycle it. Not only do you help protect your future environment, but you also help others by recycling. Last spring, our end-of-school clothing drive collected almost a ton of clothing for local charities!
Specially marked recycling containersn will be located in all residence halls near main entrances and on some residence floors. Please pitch in and put all unwanted clothing and household items in the containers and not the dumpster (that costs us all money). Clothing should be clean and dry – no wet clothing. We also collect other usable items such as: household goods, clocks, hairdryers, drying racks, irons, electronics, packs and books (some go to Books for Africa ). The clothing will be given to Savers, Goodwill and other local charities.
Thank you, again, for helping us with this reallocation of resources. By pitching in, we help the environment, conserve university resources, and benefit those who can’t afford new clothing and household items.
This recycling effort is sponsored by the Recycling Team, Residence Life and the Physical Plant.
