Green Move-Out 2015
Once again University of San Diego has partnered with Goodwill to help decrease the amount of waste that is thrown away at the end of the semester. Be mindful when moving out and place your items in the specially marked bins in order for your items to be reused and kept out of landfills. Goodwill is accepting all bedding (including mattress pads), towels, rugs, clothing, kitchenware, and other household goods. Additionally, the Electronics Recycling Center is accepting all old electronics.
San Diego has a population of over 1.2 million people who dispose over 910,000 tons of trash per year. If this rate extends over the next couple years, the Miramar Landfill will be filled to capacity and likely have to close by 2022. Please help make a difference and do not let your waste add to these numbers.
Even if you live off campus, you can still help out by bringing your electronics to the Electronics Recycling Center at 5330 Linda Vista Rd. just west of USD’s campus. The Center is open 9am-4pm Monday-Saturday and 9am-6pm on Wednesdays. You can also contact nonprofits, including Goodwill, to pick up large items. We appreciate your help… every item counts!
