As residence halls emptied after spring term, unwanted furniture, carpet, dishes and pounds of electronics, food and clothing were collected, recycled, reused.
Results are in—and they’re good! Project Move Out 2014 helped reduce overall waste as members of the North Central College campus community moved out of residence hall rooms, offices and more at the end of 2013-2014 academic year.
Here’s the good news:
• 1,000-plus lbs. of electronics, from TVs to lamps, were recycled.
• 721 square feet of carpet were set aside for recycling.
• 600 lbs. of food were collected and donated to Loaves & Fishes Community Pantry.
