Give and Go: Move-out 2015

In Spring 2014, Pacific Lutheran University partnered with Keep America Beautiful, College and University’s Recycling Coalition (CURC), and Goodwill Industries to pilot the Give and Go program. This year, we continued that partnership as PLU & Goodwill team up again for Move Out 2015!

Following the success of 2014, there were a few improvements to the spring 2015 program:

  • Larger & more donation totes in residence halls
  • Additional collection bins in high traffic areas (e.g. Mortvedt Library & Anderson University Center)
  • A dedicated “furniture” trailer located next to South Hall
  • One less landfill dumpster!

Like last year, Goodwill and PLU’s Waste Diversion Office will be providing  item donation collection in each residence hall lobby for clothes, shoes, and small household electronics. Additionally, collection boxes for any unopened non-perishable foods, ANY toiletries (even if they are half empty) and a special bin to collect dishes from the Commons will also be made available.

PLU was the first university in the Cascade region to use this kind of program, and we will continue our commitment to excellence and service in coming years. Come join us as we Give and Go and create another successful year of waste diversion and charity!
