HELP. HAVE FUN. AND FEEL GOOD.

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.

We are excited to be able to operate this worthwhile initiative once again, after a two year COVID-related pause!

How Can I Donate Stuff?

  • Collection bins will be distributed throughout the Ellicott Complex in May, during move-out week.
  • Currently, any UB student living on campus can donate material.
  • If you need additional assistance regarding donations, please be in touch with your RA or UB Sustainability. 

How Can I Get Stuff?
