UCSC aims for Zero-Waste move-out in June

Recycling Coordination June 2011 Move out donations stations arrive June 2, 2016

Don’t want to take that extra box of stuff home when you move out in June?  Donate it at one of the pop-up donation station around the colleges starting Thursday, June 2. These centers welcome clothes, household items, small furniture, unopened food, (labeled) working electronics, and toiletries. 

NOTE: all residences close at 12 noon on Friday, June 10th.

Your donated items will benefit Goodwill, H.O.P.E. Services, Second Harvest Food Bank and Homeless Services. For clarification, Goodwill Industries has an "accept and reject" list for donations they accept. Check out this list (PDF).

This is a large effort that can make a huge impact on what the University sends to the landfill, but it takes your help to make it happen. Start by reviewing the Zero Waste Resource Guides below and then take the next step and volunteer a few hours at one of the donations stations.  Let us know your availability and we will be in touch.
