Green Move In helps new students and families recycle tough items easily. School supplies, bedding, and electronics always come in heavy packaging – which can pile up, and used to do so on campus. While unpacking, bring rubbish like plastic, paper, Styrofoam, and cardboard into the PODs placed near residence halls.

After a year off in 2020, Green Move In was back for 2021! We recycled almost 3 TONS of cardboard, plastic bags and Styrofoam, and disposed of 15+ tons of waste. 

Orientation goes by fast. The Office of Sustainability wants to make move-in as easy as possible. Recycling PODS allow students to recycle cardboard, hard Styrofoam, and plastic bags 24/7 from Monday, August 15th  – Friday, September 2nd.

Sustainability Interns will be stationed at the PODS throughout Move In weekend. Please stop by or email sustainability@lafayette.edu if you have any questions about the process! The five recycling PODS will be located near: Conway House, Watson Courts, March Field, Ruef Hall and Bailey Health Center.
