Clothing Donation Bins

Community Recycling Bin in Shenkman Hall

Community Recycling (CR) has assisted the Zero Waste Team at George Washington University (GW) since 2014, helping GW advance their Zero Waste goals by diverting clothing, bedding, and other textiles from the waste stream. This partnership has spanned two major initiatives: Green Move-Out and permanent collection bins. GW has four (4) permanent bins on campus and hopes to expand to additional residence halls in the future. To date these bins have diverted approximately 29,000 pounds of clothing. A list of residence halls with the drop-off bins include:

  • Shenkman Hall (Foggy Bottom)
  • South Hall (Foggy Bottom)
  • Thurston Hall (Foggy Bottom)
  • West Hall (Mount Vernon Campus)
