  3. 3. How to get started Contact the Sustainability Department or Recycling Team directlyCalling the main desk is only going to get you someone’s voicemail. Do your homeworkand seek out an individual. Set a planning meetingTalk about a “Landfill Diversion” and “Recycling” program. Stay away from using words like“sales” and “store revenue.” Address the cost saving potential; example – you collect 40tons of goods that would have normally been thrown out, if the university spends $85 perton, you just saved them a minimum of $3,400. Request to be inside the dorms…….then request againConvenience is the key to the success of Goodwill NOT Landfill. Place donation bins in thecommon areas of dorms where the students have to walk by. Run a school age drive in atown where you already have a store or ADC. Keep things simple…..no extra effort, justdonate.

  10. 10. NASPA AwardBU Honored for Recycling Program with GoodwillBy Rich BarlowFrom the Sierra Club to the Princeton Review, bouquets for BU’s environmental efforts are blossoming like spring crocuses. The latest is anaward for a partnership with Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries that recycled 35 tons of clothing and housewares last May.The Goodwill Not Landfill program won a third-place Excellence Award from NASPA (Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education), anadvocacy and development group of administrators from 1,400 campuses worldwide. The six-year-old awards, which recognize innovativeservices in various areas of student administration, drew 205 nominations this year, says NASPA spokeswoman Kaaryn Sanon.University sustainability director Dennis Carlberg hopes to run the Goodwill collection program at the end of every semester. (A collection at theend of the fall semester garnered more than three tons of goods, he says.) A list of the items that will be accepted at the end of this semester ishere.“This is the first time that BU’s received an award from that organization,” Carlberg says. “It shows we’re being effective.” He’s not kidding: the35 tons recycled during last May’s Move Out of students leaving campus for the summer was five times the amount recycled during the 2009Move Out.The Goodwill Not Landfill program is the most formal partnership that Goodwill has with a school, says the nonprofit’s spokesman JamesHarder, although there have been sporadic pickups on other campuses.Goodwill, founded in 1895 in Boston by Methodist minister Edgar Helms (STH 1893, Hon.’40), provides job training and other services to thosefacing barriers to employment and runs a network of thrift stores. Under the Goodwill Not Landfill initiative, the University and Goodwill haveplaced collection bins in dorms and in the George Sherman Union and encourage students, faculty, and staff to deposit unwanted clothing andhousewares there.The award caps a string of honors for BU’s environmental efforts, since President Robert A. Brown launched the Boston University SustainabilityCommittee in 2008.The Sierra Club last year put BU on its fourth annual list of “coolest schools” for sustainability initiatives. Last year’s Princeton Review Guide to286 Green Colleges cited the University as well. And on the latest College Sustainability Report Card, issued by the Sustainable EndowmentsInstitute and surveying 300 campuses, BU earned a B, its highest grade ever. The report card cited the University’s efforts to cut its greenhousegas emissions and the fact that it has several staff, including Carlberg, devoted to sustainability measures.BU has also been cited by the Massachusetts utilities group Mass Save for its energy-efficiency program and by the Massachusetts Innovation andTechnology Exchange for its sustainability website.This article first appeared in BU Today on February 17, 2011.
