Annual Events

Donation Dash guide

Every spring, the Waste Reduction and Resource Awareness Program teams up with the Office of Sustainibility and local charities to divert waste during resident move out.

With three donation locations - The Hill, Creeview Apartments, and College Creek Apartments, you can find local charities collecting donatable goods, and the WRRAP team collecting compost and recyclables. 

In spring of 2019, Donation Dash diverted an estimated 10 tons of compostables, recyclables and donatable goods from the landfill! Thats equal to the weight of 20 small cars!
