    As the University of Miami prepares to wish its students well during their summer break, the Department of Housing and Residential Life is gearing up to assist the nearly 4,000 students who live on campus to move out of their on-campus rooms and apartments. And like in year’s past, HRL is encouraging students to keep the environment in mind as they decide what to bring home and what to recycle.

    In addition to maintaining its single stream recycling program throughout move-out, HRL partners with Goodwill Industries South Florida to offer students the opportunity to donate gently used items rather than throwing them away and filling the region’s landfills. University faculty and staff are encouraged to use this time to do some spring cleaning of their own and donate any items to the Goodwill collection containers available at each residence hall through May 15, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The collection containers can accommodate  a variety of items, including clothing, furniture, printers, flat screens, electronic appliances, and computers.

    In addition to donating gently used items, faculty, staff and students are encouraged to donate any canned or packaged food to a campus-wide food drive organized by the Student Food Recovery Network and Feeding South Florida, in partnership with HRL and Green U. Bins will be located in both Dining Hall lobbies through May 15.
