Marquette University's 'MarKept Move Out' initiative to conclude Sunday

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- "MarKept Move Out" at Marquette University will continue through Sunday, May 14.

The initiative, designed to reduce landfill waste and promote sustainability as students leave their on-campus homes, encourages students to donate gently used goods rather than discarding them during move-out activities.

Started by Carlos Gonzales, the program has since been taken over by Marquette Sustainability. Donation bins are available in all residence halls, with Schroeder Hall, Carpenter Tower, Cobeen Hall and Abbottsford Hall serving as pilot locations for specific categorization of items.

Acceptable donations include clothing, small appliances, school supplies and non-perishable food. However, large furniture, hazardous materials and items in poor condition are not suitable for donation.

Items collected in good condition are either resold at reduced prices during student move-in or donated to local charities.

For more information and detailed donation guidelines, visit Marquette University's website.
