UGA plans to break a record with this year’s Dawgs Ditch the Dumpster and Donate by diverting more than 38,000 pounds of material from local landfills during campus move-out this year.
Sponsored by University Housing, UGA Hillel and Goodwill of North Georgia, the event will be held April 25 through May 9 for housing residents to recycle unwanted clothing, books and other household items instead of throwing them away. These donations will help local Goodwill stores.
Donation trucks, tents, trailers and bins will be set up in 23 locations across campus, outside residence halls, the Greek Park and Family and Graduate Housing. Food donations of canned and boxed goods also will be accepted for delivery to the Athens Food Bank.
