To reduce the waste it collects during move-out, the University is encouraging recycling.

excerpt -

". . . The ReUse program also works with the Southeast Como Improvement Association.  The association started a program last year called Move In/Move Out (MIMO), which collects furniture items, food, clothing and other items from residents in the Southeast Como neighborhood. The furniture is then stored in the ReUse Program warehouse, and students can come and pick up items for free.  Last year, the program helped to divert 13,000 pounds of furniture and other reusable items from reaching landfills.  SECIA environmental coordinator Justin Eibenholzl said organizers hope to partner MIMO with the University in the future. . .
