August 21 was move-in day for San Diego State University, and more than 4,500 new students made the residence halls their homes.

With that many people moving in, there was bound to be a lot of waste, right?


Thanks to a concentrated effort from campus collaborators, SDSU was able to recycle almost 100 percent of the boxes and plastic used to move the freshman into the residence halls, keeping the university's commitment to sustainability.

"This near zero waste move-in demonstrates SDSU's potential to become a leader in campus sustainability," said Tom Abram, assistant director of campus sustainability. "Thanks to Associated Students, Housing, motivated students, and our partnership with EDCO, we demonstrated that campus can make a difference. I'm looking forward to building on this achievement this year and beyond."
