Volunteer at the Trash to Treasure BIG Sale on Friday, May 1st! Everything is on sale for a DOLLAR! You never know what treasures you may find!

Trash to Treasure is a goods recycling program run by the Campus Environmental Center. Each year we collect students' unwanted belongings as they move out of residence halls in May, store them over the summer, and sell them back to students throughout the school year. 

Trash to Treasure provides three-fold benefits:

  • Thousands of pounds of goods are diverted from the waste stream,

  • Students can buy cool, cheap goods for their residences, and

  • The money raised supports campus environmental programs, like recycling, litter reduction, and energy conservation.

All items not sold are donated to a local charity.
