Goodwill, not Landfill

During the 2014 resident hall move out, we partnered with Goodwill of Acadiana to divert electronics, home goods, clothes, and school supplies in good condition from the landfill. Collection bins were located in each resident hall and throughout Legacy Park. The students donated a total of 3,800 lbs of materials to Goodwill, which created local jobs and ultimately extended the life cycle of resources.

Through this effort and the addition of recycling dumpsters, we were able to reduce the “waste” tonnage by approximately 75% from 2013!
