When You Move Out, Don't Throw It Out!

(WYMO)

This year marks BGSU’s Office of Campus Sustainability’s 16th 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 from the residence halls to prevent these items from getting sent to a landfill.

These items are then offered to local nonprofits as well as resold back to the campus community in a large ReStore Thrift Sale event during the summer.
