The first was launched on December 6, 2010. The program encourages residential students to donate nonperishable food, usable clothing, electronics, furniture and books as they move out of the residence halls, instead of throwing these items away. The program includes a swap component to promote reuse on campus by encouraging students to reuse items donated by their peers.
2015 will be the fifth anniversary of Give ‘N Go on Bentley’s Campus. The past three years have been successful, diverting 1,400 pounds of material from the landfill in spring 2014 alone. The Office of Sustainability reorganized the program for Spring 2013 by using temporary tents rather than PODS. This increased effectiveness and efficiency. In 2014 we added extra hours and extra locations to the tent system.
