» Tips for On-Campus Donations

Hey Panthers! We know that move-out season can be stressful, especially with spring semester finals right around the corner. During move-out you many fins donation bins located around the dorm residence halls. Chapman University along with the Sustainability Department are implementing new guidelines and categories for donations. By increasing donation options we're hoping to have a positive impact on the Orange community and the environment. Below are some suggestions for items that would be acceptable to put into the donation bins.

Note: For larger items like mattress pads or unwanted furniture please contact the Sustainability Department about proper disposal procedures.
