If you can't keep it or sell it, donate it during Greening Move Out.

Every spring, the EcoReps Greening Move Out team partners with local charities and organizations to donate any used or unwanted items from campus dorms. As you move out, please bring unwanted items to a donation station between May 20-May 25 and June 4-5. Donation stations will be located across campus and staffed with EcoReps. Abandoned items left on campus will be sent to the landfill, so please bring them to the closest EcoReps Donation Station!

The Princeton University Ecology Representative Program (EcoReps) was founded in 2004 and is hosted by the Office of Sustainability. The EcoReps support the mission of the Office of Sustainability by promoting the integration of Princeton’s sustainability goals into life on campus, with a focus on residential life; athletics; Move Out/In; Reunions and other events. Through their efforts, the EcoReps aim to increase sustainability awareness and behaviors among Princeton students.

During Move-In this past September, Frist South Lawn once again resembled a yard sale as part of our second annual Move-In Resale. Featured were rows of couches, futons, lamps, rugs, and more. The 3,000+ dorm items were collected the previous semester through the expanded Greening Move Out program.
