Trash-2-Treasure and Waste Reduction
Every year, we collect items that students leave behind so that these materials are not wasted and hold a sale for charity at the end of the school year. From mini-fridges to detergent, students can donate all manners of items to the sale, but we need your cooperation to make sure everything goes smoothly! Please take the time to read the move-out information so that you know how to donate to Trash-2-Treasure. Items you cannot donate still need not go to the incinerator! Check out the Waste Disposal Guide to find out which items can be composted or recycled. Thank you for your efforts to reduce waste!
Regardless of how much energy Facilities is pouring into heating, you may notice that you're room is not warm enough. On this page, we list heating tips to try before contacting work box. Did you know that in a month like November, Swarthmore needs more energy to heat domestic water (e.g. shower water) in the resident halls than to keep the space warm? See how much energy your dorm is using with the real-time energy tracking page from Facilities, and try to tell when someone is using the elevator!
