Donate unwanted items when moving out of residence halls

Emory Report | April 25, 2018

“Don’t Dump It, Donate It,” the annual recycling event for residence hall move-out, is underway now on campus until May 17. 

Residents moving out at the end of the semester are asked to donate rather than put into the landfill unwanted and unneeded items including school supplies, furniture, books, clothing, small appliances and other household items. 

Bins specially marked for the donations are placed in the residence halls areas of campus, including the sorority townhouses and fraternity houses on Eagle Row.

Trucks will be on hand to pick up big items such as furniture and will follow this schedule:

  • April 22-May 11 at Raoul, Few/Evans, Holmes-Pierce Promenade, Dobbs, Alabama, Complex and Woodruff residence halls.
  • April 22-May 17 at sorority townhouses, fraternity row, Clairmont Campus and H Building.

Proceeds from the sale of donated items will be given to Global Growers, a non-profit that connects local refugee families to land, education and food markets to build healthier communities through opportunities in sustainable agriculture.

The “Don’t Dump It, Donate It” campaign is an Earth Month program. This program is made possible by the following organizations: Housing and Residence Life, Emory Recycles and the Office of Sustainability Initiatives.
