Office of Sustainability’s freecycle event

Are you cleaning out your residence hall room for winter break? Moving off campus second semester or studying abroad? Are you graduating and can’t take it all with you? If you need to rid yourself of some clutter or clothing, don’t trash your stuff, “freecycle” it instead. Freecycling is a way to exchange used items at no cost. Donate your stuff and someone else can have it for free.

The Office for Sustainability will host a freecycle event Friday, Dec. 2, from noon to 5 p.m. in the Tinkham Veale University Center’s Senior Classroom.

Students can bring used clothes (clean and in good condition), books, home items, school supplies and unopened nonperishable foods for others, who can get the items at no cost.

Items that are no longer wanted can be dropped off during the event or the preceding week in collection boxes in area offices and residence halls around campus (including Wade, Fribley, Carlton and The Village).

Donations and trade are encouraged but are not required to participate.

All items that remain after the event will be donated directly to the Thea Bowman Center or another local charity.

This event is organized The Office for Sustainability’s student sustainability ambassadors. Contact the office at with any questions.
