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

A brief description of the program:

As with the move-in waste reduction strategy, the residence halls areas have outdoor recycling bins that have special (more frequent) collection times during move-out dates and again the newest residence hall area collects the cardboard boxes and recycles them with the dining hall in that area.

Also residence life has a program with Good Will and unwanted items are placed in one of two trucks available in the residence hall areas. This coming year a free yard sale will be established where residents can put out unwanted electronics and furniture and other students can select it and take it for free with their student ID.
