2014 Spring Move-Out

Goodwill Not Landfill

Monday, June 9 - Friday, June 13, 2014

Student Housing collects donations of reusable goods and non-perishable foods during finals week. As residents prepare to move out of the residence halls they may identify items they no longer need or want. These items can be donated so they can continue to be used by others.

Donation Locations

Student Housing will establish a collection center in each residence hall where residents may bring their reusable items and non-perishable foods. Most collection centers will be set-up in residence hall lobby areas.

Area Maps (buildings hosting a collection center are highlighted): Segundo | Tercero | Cuarto

How Does It Work?

Collection centers will have a yellow bin for collecting non-perishable food items and a container with a plastic donation bag for collecting loose non-food items such as clothing, housewares, etc. Students who wish to take a plastic donation bag to their room in order to easily bring several items to the collection center may get one at the Area Service Desk. They may leave the plastic donation bag in the collection center.

What To Donate

  • Clothes/Shoes
  • Accessories
  • School/Office Supplies
  • Linens/Towels
  • Housewares
  • Electronics
  • Non-perishable Food

What Not To Donate

  • Anything badly stained, soiled, worn, torn, broken, or missing parts

What Happens to the Donations?

All non-food items are donated to Goodwill Industries, a community based non-profit organization that provides employment opportunities for people with disabilities or other special needs and to the Aggie ReUse Store, an on campus second-hand shop located on the first floor of the Memorial Union brought to you by the Associated Students of UC Davis.

All non-perishable food items are donated to the Food Bank of Yolo County that operates locally to address hunger issues in Yolo County.

Don't Forget!

See the Student Housing Waste Diversion Guide for instructions on diverting Recyclables, Organic Waste, eWaste, and Household Hazardous Waste from the landfill.
