Campus ReStore

The Office of Campus Sustainability is working to reduce the amount of solid waste generated on campus while conserving natural resources through the practice of "re-use" at BGSU!  

Campus ReStore

The Campus ReStore is located in the McDonald Hall Annex. Specifically, the northern section of the McDonald residence hall. ReStore customers should enter through the North door off of the Offenhauer Courtyard.

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


This year marked BGSU’s Office of Campus Sustainability’s 19th 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.
