Moving out of the dorms is a chaotic, exciting time. For many, the dorms represent their first year of college, and moving out of them marks the end of their freshman year. While this is inherently exciting, it also frequently generates a lot of waste. Living in the dorms poses certain limitations that are not necessarily present in their future living situation. As a result of this, there are frequently furniture items and other dorm specific items which may no longer be needed after your year in the dorms. Far too often, these unneeded items get thrown away, rather than being donated or ever being given a chance to be used again. Moving out of the dorms also comes with a lot of cleaning, it can be too easy to simply put everything that will be thrown out to some degree in one bag, rather than properly sorting it into compost, recycling, and landfill as one would at any other given time. Luckily, the environmental center has donation centers in the lobbies of each dorm in order to donate usable items and ensure everything else is being sorted properly. This article will act as a resource to make moving out as zero waste as possible!
