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

A brief description of the program:

Middlebury sets up Drop-Zones at the end of the year to collect large and small reusable items. All trash/recycling is brought to our Recycling Facility. Materials are looked at to determine whether they can be reused, recycled, or composted. We fill the equivalent of 2-4 tractor trailers of reusable items such as school supplies, dishes and other kitchenware, clothing, and furniture each year. Those items are then made available to the College community for a very low price.
