SUNY Cortland Sets Sights on Less Student Trash Through Recycling, Reuse

SUNY Cortland students moving out of the school after final exams are being encouraged to donate nonperishable food and other items they aren’t taking back home with them instead of simply throwing these things away.

This is due to the university partnering with Cortland ReUse to collect items such as unwanted bedding, school supplies, electronics and small furniture. The goal is to ensure that even more items can be donated or reused than in the past. Collection boxes will be available in all residences until May 19th. There’ll be one container for donated food items and another for anything else that might be salvageable.

Nonperishable food will be donated to the SUNY Cortland Cupboard, while other donated items will be picked up by Cortland ReUse and made available at the nonprofit organization’s community-run retail store.
