Green Move In

During 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 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
  • Consider 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
  • Consider purchasing a Smart Strip surge protector
