Queen’s, UAlberta host initiatives to keep items out of the landfill as semester ends

As the school year ends and students prepare to move home, Queen’s University and the University of Alberta hosted initiatives focused on keeping items out of the landfill. At Queen’s, the Second Hand Shuffle event gave students the opportunity to donate a wide range of items from clothing to electrical appliances. Community members and representatives from non-profits attended the event to pick up items that they could use for free. UAlberta hosted an Eco Move Out initiative that gathered clothing, toiletries, home goods, and recyclables to help students move off campus sustainably. Students were invited to drop off items over a series of weeks. Items were then sorted and sent to community partners such as the food bank.
