Green Move In

During Fall Move In, Green Team crew members are stationed throughout residential areas to help keep recyclables (especially all that cardboard!) out of the landfill. Green Team also monitors waste stations at events such as orientation lunches, Welcome BBQ and Color Run.

Green Team helping during Move In

Tips for minimizing landfill waste when moving in:

  • bring items in reusable totes (they will come in handy at move out)
  • bring or purchase reusable water bottles and mugs; use them at campus cafes and receive a discount
  • bring a water filter instead of individual water bottles
  • familiarize yourself with recycling and composting at Pacific
  • coordinate with your roommate who will bring what so you don't have extra appliances
  • purchase a Smart Strip surge protector
