With summer around the corner, and graduation this weekend, many HSU students will be moving out, while leaving behind their belongings, and the city of Arcata is asking students to not leave those items on curbs.
HSU’s Waste and Recycling Ground Coordinator, Megan Tolbert, works with volunteers to reduce landfill waste by collecting recyclables and reusable products that can go into the community or be re-purposed back on campus. They will be collecting items just outside of the residence halls.
Tolbert says that they’re working with three different charities and donating the items to their thrift shops. HSU’s food pantry also just received a fifty thousand dollar grant, and will be opening their own campus thrift shop, to be available to students in the fall.
