2015 will be the fifth anniversary of Give ‘N Go on Bentley’s Campus. The past years have been successful, diverting 1,400 tons of material from the landfill in spring 2014 alone. The Office of Sustainability 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 five 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*
- Freshman Res Halls between Slade and Trees
- Parking Lot 17 (outside of Rhodes)
- South Campus Green Space*
Drop off times:
Donation stations will be open from
12pm – 6pm program Tuesday, May 5 – Thursday May 6th
10-2 pm Saturday May, 9th in the locations with the * above only
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.
