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

A brief description of the program:

Every fall semester move-in at UVM, the Recycling & Waste Management office coordinates a program to encourage students to recycle their cardboard boxes. The Recycling crew sets up specific areas where students can break down and stack their empty boxes. The crew also monitors the area regularly and takes the cardboard to a temporary storage facility, which is later delivered to the Chittenden Solid Waste District Materials Recycling Facility.
