DONATE. DIVERT. AND DO GOOD.

RECYCLE. REUSE. AND FURNISH YOUR DORM.

UBReUSE is a student-run campus waste diversion program supported by UB Sustainability and Campus Living.  The program captures goods during move-out, that are useful, but no longer wanted or needed by their owner.  UBReUSE's goal is to connect these materials with new owners and reduce the amount of stuff going to landfill.
