Update: End of the Year Collection Drive!

Hi Everyone!

Thank you so much for donating these past 2 weeks! We’ve had such an amazing response to this initiative.

As for the updated dates, donations will be collected until Tuesday morning (5/25). A few sites will remain active, but for the most part the bins will be unavailable for donation during Reunions.

However, for those of you on campus until the end of interim housing, the End of the Year Collection Drive will continue from June 1st to June 2nd at the following sites:

*Henry
*Dod
*Pyne/Spelman
*Walker/Patton

Thanks again! And have a great summer!

We’ve gotten so many donations over the past 2 weeks that we couldn’t even fit everything into this photo! I should have taken a photo of the other side of the room though- not seen are many more filled bins and two giant 4 ft. tall boxes filled to the brim with books. Thanks for donating!

Please excuse the mess in this photo! We are in the process of organizing everything in Eco-Rep’s storage facility (books, school supplies, toiletries, and food)

End of the Year Collection Drive

Need a break from studying for finals? What could be better than cleaning out your things and doing a bit of organizing! The bins for the End of the Year Collection Drive are up! Acceptable donations include new/used clothing, unopened food, unopened toiletries, school supplies, and new/used books. Check out the photos section for more details on where you can find the donation site closest to you. (There will be 19 sites on campus, all with bins for each type of item.)

This is all for a great cause! Specific organizations have yet to be chosen, but items will be donated to local charities, schools, and churches. Last year, toiletries were donated to the Rescue Mission, school supplies to Willingboro and Bronx schools, food to churches in Alabama, and books to a Book Exchange initiative on campus.

Contact us at ecoreps@princeton.edu if you have any questions!

Cell Phone Recycling @ Frist Campus Center!

Did you just get a new cell phone and have no idea what to do with your old one? Drop off your used cell phones while you’re at Frist Campus Center for class, late meal, etc. Our collection bin is located by the mailboxes closest to Cafe Viv and Witherspoon’s (right next to the FedEx device as shown in our pictures).

*Over 230 million Americans have a cell phone. Americans buy a new cell phone every 9-18 months.
*One cell phone, if thrown away, can pollute 40,000 gallons of ground water.
*Continued recycling and reuse of cell phones substantially reduces the number of phones manufactured globally every year.
*Recycling your cell phone is good for the environment!
