What You Can Do
There are many ways students can engage with sustainability while you live at the heart of the Aggie experience. Levels of engagement vary from utilizing the recycling bins to being a leader in sustainability by joining a student organization. Please see the “Projects” tab for more information about these opportunities.
Download the Eco Aggies app from Joulebug and play in any of the ongoing challenges on the app. Also, receive notifications about sustainable events on campus!

Don’t Dump, Donate
At the end of the spring semester, donate your unwanted items to Goodwill in our Don’t Dump, Donate program.
Have you ever started preparing to move out of the residence halls in the spring and discovered you acquired more stuff than you remembered?
Instead of throwing away goods and contributing to the landfill, donate your material to the Don’t Dump, Donate program! TAMU ResLife partners with Goodwill during move out to give students that opportunity.
Locations include parking lot 32 by Haas Hall, beside the south side parking garage, the White Creek Activity Center, and near the Activity Center at the Gardens Apartments. Drop-off times will be May 2-12 at 8:30am-4:30pm everyday (weekends included). Accepted items include electronics, small appliances (not including microwaves or TVs), clothing, towels and rugs, shoes, and other household items.
If you have nonperishable food, you can also donate it to The 12th Can program at the Commons Front Desk, Hullabaloo and at the Goodwill trucks.
