At the end of each university school year, students are left with the task of cleaning out their residences, and usually discarding the items that they have accumulated over the course of the year. The University of Alberta’s Office of Sustainability is trying to change the mindset of their students, from discard, to re-use and donate. The point of Eco Move Out is to eliminate waste, or at the very least, minimize the quantity of items that are heading into the garbage bin. The event runs from April 16 – 30 at the U of A Campus.
Goodwill is a proud partner of Eco Move Out, but we couldn’t have done it without the overwhelming support of our partner, Waste Management. Waste Management has been a great partner that has allowed us to delve even deeper into the recycling and donating community.
