Every year as students leave for the summer, Northwest and the Maryville community are faced with a considerable amount of waste to deal with. Since 2009, the University's landfill waste has increased by an average of 19 tons in the last month of the spring semester. Graduation, new apartment leases, fraternity move out/in, and residence hall relocation often mean that there's just more stuff than we can take with us. That is where the BIG GREEN MOVEOUT comes in:
Northwest Facility Services, The Residence Hall Association, and Students Taking Action at Northwest for Developing Sustainability (STANDS) have partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nodaway County to make this program a reality. Special campus drop-off locations have been set up for students to not only do their part for the environment by keeping their GOOD USED CLOTHES AND HOUSE WARES out of the landfill, they can also give back to the community.
Move Out bins are located in the lobby of every residence hall, and a blue BBBS donation bin and trailer have been set up on campus Lot 21 on West Nineth St There are also blue bins located in the Sutherlands parking lot on South Main St., as well as the corner of West Fourth and N. Fillmore St.
