Trash to Treasure is a campus wide initiative to increase sustainable efforts by reducing trash at the end of the academic year, to increase staff productivity (thus saving time and money) by reducing the amount of old items left behind by on-campus students, and to increase the support of the local community by reducing the barriers between student and charitable organization.
During the week of finals, you can find a station in or near your place of residence to give away (almost) any item that you do not plan to pack up and take home with you or that you were going to throw away. View a list of reusable items that will be accepted.
Trash to Treasure is a collaborative effort between the Departments of Resident Life, Residential Facilities, Transportation Services, and Fraternity and Sorority Life here at the University of Maryland. We are thankful for the help and cooperation of Goodwill, Help-by-Phone, Capitol Area Food Bank, and PODS. Most importantly our efforts would be for naught without all of the student and staff volunteers, housekeepers, and student staff that are watching over our stations and receiving your donations.
