How It Works

 

2013 will be the third anniversary of Give ‘N Go on Bentley’s Campus.  The past two years have been successful, diverting 1,500 tons of material from the landfill in spring 2012 alone.  The Office of Sustainability has reorganized the program for Spring 2013 to increase effectiveness and efficiency so it will look very different from past programs.

This year there will be four drop off locations staffed by Olympia Moving and Storage employees and volunteers.  Drop of locations will consist of pop-up tents with large signs, PODs will not be used. 

Drop off locations:

·         North Campus;

·         Main campus green space;

·         Parking lot 17 (outside of Rhodes);

·         South campus green space

Drop of times:

Donation stations will be open from 12pm – 5pm each day of the program.

Swapping:

Similar to previous years, students will be allowed to swap items at the donation stations to encourage the reuse of goods.  There are no rules for swapping, but swappers must keep donations organized and put items like clothing back in boxes when finished.  Trashing of the donation stations will not be accepted and any persons who appear to be ignoring these rules will be asked to leave the donation station.

 

All items left over at the end of each day will be donated to local charities.
