Live Green Team Programs

Recycling and Reuse Programs

  • Cardboard Corrals: During Move In each year, the Live Green Team sets up “cardboard corrals” to collect cardboard boxes and packaging for recycling. Volunteers help students and parents break down boxes and divert recyclables from the trash bins.
  • Leave It Behind: Each year during finals week, the Live Green Team pairs up with Facilities Management's Intergrated Solid Waste team to host a charity program to encourage students moving out of the residence halls to donate unwanted items to local charities. Items collected include clothing, electronics, non-perishable food, furniture, and school supplies. In 2014, 18 tons of material was donated to the program.
