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 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.
