Kick off your spring-cleaning efforts by gathering items to contribute to Georgia Tech’s Earth Day efforts.
Members of the campus community may donate used athletic shoes, clothing, E-waste, office supplies or books for one of the following Earth Day projects:
- Reuse-A-Shoe: The Nike Reuse-A-Shoe program grinds up old athletic shoes and turns them into material used to build running tracks, basketball courts and tennis courts. Used athletic shoes (with rubber bottoms) can be dropped off at the Office of Solid Waste Management and Recycling, Barnes & Noble @ Georgia Tech Bookstore and Burdell’s.
- Clothing Swap: Gently used clothing and accessories are being collected for the fourth annual Clothing Swap, which will be held during the 2012 Earth Day celebration on Friday, April 20. At the Earth Day Celebration students, faculty and staff may shop through the donated items — free of charge. Drop-off locations include the Office of Solid Waste Management and Recycling (947 Atlantic Dr., 404-385-0088), Barnes & Noble @ Georgia Tech Bookstore and Burdell’s.
- E-Waste Drive: Tech has partnered with Atlanta Recycling Solutions to host an electronics recycling drive. E-waste, including laptops and keyboards, can be dropped off during the Earth Day festivities, or items can be dropped off now through March 30 at the Office of Solid Waste Management and Recycling from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Office Supply Exchange and Book Swap: Donate your unused supplies for the Office Supply Exchange. At Earth Day, members of the campus community can shop through the donated items — free of charge. This year, a book swap is also being incorporated. Drop off supplies and books at the Office of Solid Waste Management and Recycling.
