This wouldn't be possible without our volunteers. Want to volunteer May 10 or May 20? Email email@example.com.
Any questions about what to give?
While we love donations, consider taking home as much stuff as you can. You can even get a box picked up. Enter in the code GoGreen to help the Give + Go cause.
- Bristol Lodge and Shelter
- More Than Words Bookstore
- Global Thrift Store
- Boston Public Schools
- Waltham Group Kids Club
- and more!
Some items may also be saved for the Move in Market on the Brandeis campus in the fall. Any profits from the market go to support this collection effort and campus sustainability. The vast majority- trucks and trucks full of stuff- are donated off campus.
Keep on recycling. It's easy when you move out! We have special Move-Out Dumpsters!
Graduating Students- take the Graduation Pledge of Social and Environmental Responsibility!
Give + Go collection happens every spring semester. spring 2013 begins on May 2 and continued through senior move-out on May 19.
What is Give + Go?
During spring semester move out, Brandeis students often leave behind a large amount of stuff on campus. Crazy? Yes- but we are here to make sure something good can come out of it! Give + Go is a community wide effort to reduce waste and donate tons of needed goods to the local community.We even keep some stuff to resell for students in the fall- to help reduce even more waste- and this sale funds the big collection operation. It's a win-win-win!
When you move out, please help needy people and reduce waste. Please give items in good condition and place neatly in labeled locations. Give + Go is coordinated by the Waltham Group, Community Living, S.E.A., Facilities, and Eco-Reps. Thank you for giving!

Move Out Waste Dumpsters
During Move Out only, special dumpsters will be placed near each residential area where trash and recycling can be combined. Contractors will sort the trash from the recycling at an offsite facility. You can place regular trash and any recyclable material- paper, cardboard, plastics, glass, and metals in the special dumpsters. Please keep all food waste inside plastic bags to avoid mess and as usual keep liquids out.
We are excited to offer this new option and reduce Move Out Waste! Remember, inside buildings and any non residential buildings you still have to sort recyclables from trash.
