Move Out 2013

 
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
During a stressful and hectic finals week, it's tempting to simply dump all of your items into the nearest trash bin. However, SCU has implemented programs to provide options for responsible recycling and donations. In the last five years, students have diverted over 25 tons of material during the move-out process. Our individual actions to sort our stuff during move-out not only help to reduce our impact on the environment, but also help SCU to save money in landfill fees!

Click on your residence hall to learn what to do with all your stuff as you pack up for the Summer.

  • Donations
    Donations to Hope Services* are a great way of keeping your perfectly good reusables out of the landfill! They accept the following items:

 

Books
Clocks
Clothing
Curtains & drapes
Dishes & silverware
Irons
Jewelry
Knick knacks
Lamps
Linens
Luggage
Microwaves
Pictures & frames
Pots & pans
Purses, bags & backpacks
Records, CDs, DVDs, etc
Shoes
Sporting goods
Stereos
Tools
Toys
TVs
  •  A good rule to follow about donating items is that you would feel comfortable giving them to a family member or close friend. Please bring your donations to the big cardboard bins in your residence hall lobby.

*Hope Services is a nonprofit agency that helps individuals with developmental disabilities to become valued and participating members of their communities. 

  • Recycling
    The regular waste and recycling areas will be closed during move-out week to prevent overflow. There will be designated recycling containers near every trash dumpster. Read your building's instructions to find the recycling area nearest you. Bring recyclables such as glass, plastics #1-7, aluminum, paper and cardboard to these areas. Please flatten cardboard items and place next to the bin.


  • Carpets
    SCU will recycle your old carpets. Please leave your (rolled!) carpets in the grass next to the staked sign labeled "CARPETS".
  • E-waste
    Electronic waste (e-waste) is anything with a cord or battery. If your items work, please donate them to Hope Services or a friend. If not, bring them to the staked signs labeled "E-WASTE" so they can be properly recycled. Don't throw e-waste away! If not recycled properly, it can be extremely hazardous to the people that end up dealing with it.
  • Food
    Food 4 Fines
    : Bring non-perishable items to the library and receive $2 off your fines for every item you bring. The most needed foods are powdered milk, peanut butter, meals-in-a-can (stew, chili, soup), 100% fruit juices, and canned foods with pop-top lids. Food 4 Fines continues through June 1st, at the library's circulation desk.
    Second Harvest Food Bank:
    Donate non-perishable items to the barrels by Cellar Market, or donate up to $50 of your leftover food points.
