2014 Campus Salvage

On-Campus Donation Collection - May 5-13, 2014 on-campus (look for the PODS around University Housing)

Salvage Sale - May 17, 2014 8am-10am *Due to the overwhelming popularity of this event, customers must line up to enter the sale and only a few will be allowed to enter at a time to prevent safety issues. Location - PODS Parking Lot, 370 Allied Drive, Conway

About the Program - At the end of the academic year, Sustain Coastal organizes and coordinates the Campus Salvage move-out program. Since its first effort in 2008, the program has evolved from grassroots dumpster diving into a well-known structured campaign. It's not just about saving items from the landfill, it's about collecting items to donate to local organizations and helping those in need in our community. The success of Campus Salvage depends on your donations!

During the last week in April, the Campus Salvage Program sets out PODS across campus to accept unwanted items from students, staff and faculty at the end of the school year. More than half of the items we collect are donated to local organizations in need. The rest is sold at a community sale to pay for the costs to place the PODS on campus and help provide funding to the CCU Student Green Fund.

To learn more or if your local organization needs donations, please call (843) 349-5041 or email sustain@coastal.edu

Volunteer! We need students, staff and faculty to help at the collection points for Campus Salvage, May 5-13, 2014. Please contact sustain@coastal.edu to sign up.
