When You Move Out, Don’t Throw It Out
This year marks BGSU’s Office of Campus Sustainability’s 14th annual "When You Move Out, Don’t Throw It Out" (WYMO) program, a campus-wide reuse and waste-reduction initiative! WYMO collects still-usable, but unwanted, items from students as they're moving out to prevent these items from getting sent to a landfill.
reStore Thrift Sale Details:
To reduce the need for additional resource consumption as well as
reducing landfill waste, we're offering these donations back to the
BGSU community through a two-day, blowout sale! Futons, minifridges,
microwaves, fans, lighting, school supplies, clothing, and more... all
at LOW prices! A great opportunity to prepare for Fall semester!
(Cash & Credit Accepted)
Why buy new when you can reuse?
When: May 24th & 25th; 9am-3pm
Where: Harshman Community Room (Wooster St. entrance)
Who: BGSU Students, Faculty, & Staff (Valid ID Checked at Entrance)
Interested in volunteering?
We need volunteers to help us run the reStore Thrift Sale by keeping shelves stocked & organized, assisting customers, staffing the doors, etc.
