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

A brief description of the program:

The university has run a program called Green Move-In for several years, to follow-up on its Green Move-Out program. The Green Move-In program encourages students to move to campus using a list of packing tips aimed at increasing their use of reuseable packaging materials rather than one-time-use materials. Once students arrive, the program recycles as much cardboard as possible from the residence halls.
