Hoosier to Hoosier was established to deal with a serious campus waste issue. At the end of the semester, in early May, thousands of students prepare to leave campus. Most students are busy studying for finals and saying good-bye to their friends. Moving out of their dorm, apartment, or house is just another thing on their already full to-do list. In the past H2H has been there for these students who needed help getting rid of their stuff.
Here are some year round options:
- Have a swap party with friends!
- Find an interesting upcycling project
- Donate your stuff to one of the many local resale stores
Whichever option you choose, please try to avoid sending reusable items to the landfill. The following video takes you on a fast forward version of the 60 MILE trip Bloomington trash makes in vehicles that get LESS THAN 10MPG!
The Trip Your Trash Makes
Watch members of the H2H team take a trip to Sycamore Ridge Landfill to learn more about where their waste goes.
