The Husky Exchange is Michigan Tech’s green move-out program. With your help, we will gather reusable but unwanted items from residents as they move out of the residence halls in the spring, then store and sort the items and donate to local organizations or resell/giveaway the items back to students in the fall. Together we can support students and the local community, divert waste from the landfill, and help build an awareness of sustainability at Michigan Tech. Last year, we collected over 10,000 items and kept more than 2 tons of materials out of the landfill!
When? Students can drop donations off anytime between Friday, April 21 and Sunday, April 30.
Where? There are eight drop off locations in the residence halls:
- WADS (5): outside the Cafe on the ground floor, and in each of the centrally located kitchenettes (floors 2-5)
- McNair (2): glass lounge outside the front desk (lobby) and the lobby area on ground floor east of the dining hall.
- DHH (1): Connector space
- Hillside (1): first floor kitchen near fireplace
- Julien Heights and Hillcrest (3): in main entry in each building, and a pop up tent by the dumpster for larger items
What? The general rule is: if it’s clean and might be useful to someone, drop it off.
Partial list of items: pool noodles, broomball sticks, non-perishable food, fans, lamps, storage and shelving, mirrors, office supplies, area rugs, electronics, laundered clothing, and small, clean, appliances.
