What to donate:

  • Unopened, nonperishable food
  • Clean, gently worn clothing and linens
  • Furniture
  • Small appliances
  • Electronics
  • Laundry detergent
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Books, CDs, DVDs, etc.

What not to donate:

  • Opened, expired food
  • Foam mattress pads
  • Pillows

Collection boxes for Drop and Swap will be available beginning Monday, April 25 thru Saturday, May 14, 2016 in the lobby of all residence halls and the clubhouse/lounge of off-campus apartment communities and at the dumpsters.

 

What is sustainability?

Longwood has adopted the definition of sustainability from Our Common Future: The Report of the World Commission on Environment and Development, commonlyRecycaling Icon known as the Bruntland Report:

"Sustainable Development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
