The Office of Sustainability’s annual Green Move Out was a tremendous success. The program, which encourages students leaving campus to recycle unwanted items, benefits local community groups who are invited to collect the donations.

The program was highlighted on WFMZ News. Watch the clip here.

Kendall Roberson, the Office of Sustainability’s fellow, estimates that more than 13,000 pounds of gently used household items were donated by students this May. Roberson and volunteers collected food, toiletries, clothing, cooking and cleaning items, home d├ęcor, and school supplies, and organized them in the Sullivan Parking Deck on campus, which was then open to community groups.

Several local organizations took advantage of the opportunity, including The Easton Public Library, Project of Easton, The Children’s Home of Easton, The Center for Animal Health and Welfare, Riverside Ministries, The Greater Easton Development Partnership, College Hill Furniture Bank, and American Family Services.
