The Great Move Out is coordinated by Oregon State University, in partnership with Campus Recycling, Republic Services, the City of Corvallis, and local nonprofits. In order to reduce abandoned items in residential areas, increase neighborhood livability, and promote sustainability, Oregon State University and community stakeholders are coordinating two move-out donation drives for students living both on and off campus. The Great Move Out: Off-Campus Donation Drive will help students donate an recycle items they no longer want. A range of items will be accepted including mattresses, furniture, electronics, office/school supplies, books, kitchen/household wares. This effort is modeled after the annual Residence Hall Donation Drive that diverted 35,676 pounds of material from landfills last year.
The Great Move Out Donation Drive is held during the end of spring term. Bring your donation items and encourage friends to do the same. Donated items will go to local nonprofits for reuse. As a community, we can live more sustainably.
