Green Move-In and Move-Out
USD was selected to be part of a national campaign called “Give and Go” through Keep America Beautiful. We have partnered with our local Goodwill to collect gently used items. USD will donate all textile items (clothing, bedding, towels, rugs) to Goodwill and support our local community. We will keep all household items, kitchen items, shower items, and electronics to resell in the beginning of Fall semester at heavily reduced prices. Revenue from those sales will go towards sustainability initiatives and projects on campus, grants to students and faculty, student scholarships, and nonprofit sustainable organizations in the community.
Collection bins will be set up in each Residential Area May 13th. Please do not throw usable items in the landfill. Be MINDFUL about move-out. Help us keep items out of the landfill and support our community.
Looking for gently used items for your residential hall? Well look no further!!!
This past move out, the Office of Sustainability worked with Residential Life to collect all reusable items from the dorm areas. Some items were donated to our local Goodwill and the other items will be sold back to new and returning students in the fall. Categories of these items include dorm furniture (mirrors, bed risers, fans), shower caddies and other bathroom items, school supplies, room decorations and much more! All these items will be sold at heavily discounted prices at the USD Electronics Recycling Center located west of campus at 5330 Linda Vista Road. Stop by the Center during move-in weekend to get your dorm supplies at a discount!
