SDSU promotes sustainability through move-out event


Brina Sturm, Lifestyles Editor

Don’t Dump! Donate! is an annual event during spring move-out. Facilities & Services – Sustainability partners with Residential Life to collect unwanted, but good quality, items from students as they move out of the residence halls. These items are diverted from the landfill and donated to local non-profits.

Common items that are donated include: 

Appliances, carpet, cleaning supplies, clothes, food, furniture, hygiene items, kitchen supplies, laundry supplies and office supplies.

Don’t Dump! Donate! will take place April 29 & 30 and May 1, 5, & 6 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. This program keeps reusable materials out of the landfill by providing students the opportunity to donate quality items they no longer want to local nonprofits.

Drop off locations are located north of Honors Hall, west of Larson Commons and west of Abbott Hall. If you live in Hansen, Meadows or the Southeast Apartments, call (605) 688-4136 to coordinate a donation pick-up.

Accepted Items Include:

Appliances, blankets, carpets, cleaning supplies, clothing, fans, food, furniture, hygiene items, lamps, laundry supplies, mirrors, office supplies, outdoor winter clothes, reusable water bottles, sheets, shower caddies, towels and more!

*All items must be in reusable condition. Acceptance of items is at the discretion of the Don’t Dump! Donate! volunteers.
