    Hello Mohamed and Pete,

    The YMCA sent the attached photos showing some of the items collected from the students moving out, with Housing

    and F&S support this month. They are very grateful and I also heard from some of the YMCA’s folks how very helpful the

    F&S staff were, in particular.

    I will be attending a check-in meeting tomorrow morning, and I believe Chancellor Jones asked Lowa to lead the

    discussions over the next few months to provide campus assistance to this effort in the future. Lowa will include me in

    those discussions, and I am very pleased that we are moving in that direction to support this great waste-reduction

    effort!

    Thanks,

    Morgan

    Alma, Morgan and Lowa,

     

    I just wantedd to invite you to stop by the stock pavilion on Pennslvania sometime this week between 9 AM

    and 4 PM. We finish up collections this week and have already starting loading items on the semi trailers. So

    far I think this has been a great improvement this year and the staffs from F&S as well as Housing have been

    very helpful.

    A 5-10 minute tour will give you a sense of the operations at this point and I believe be very helpful in future

    discussions about what is involved in this program. If you let us knowwhen you will stop by Mar or I can try

    to be there to give you a uick tour but if that doesn't work, you can just stop by when it is convenient.

    Thanks,

    Mike

  3. Approval for Support from campus to YMCA for Dump and Run

    Associated Project(s): 

    The following email contains a confirmation of approval from Lowa Mwilambwe for campus to provide support to the Dump and Run Program coordinated by the YMCA.

    Subject: Re: Dump & Run funding confirmation

     

    This is to confirm that it is acceptable for campus to provide support to the Dump and Run Program coordinated by the YMCA. This program allows residence halls to dispose of items students don’t want to take home with them at the end of the spring semester by having YMCA volunteers collect them. Incoming students get the opportunity to purchase these items in August as they return to school. If this program didn’t exist, these items would end up in a landfill. Furthermore University Housing would be responsible for their disposal.

     

    Regarding truck usage, University staff should be the only individuals to drive University vehicles or ride in them. YMCA volunteers can load and unload the vehicles.

     

    Please note that I have explained to the YMCA staff that this is a one‐time deal and that we won’t be able to offer the same type of support next year. They are working on providing me with more information about how they use the funding generated from this program.

     

    I have copied all University staff I have I have talked to regarding this matter and they can offer their perspective, if I omitted anything.

     

    Thanks to all of you for making this happen, this one time. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Hi Lowa,

     

    Please confirm (in writing) that it is acceptable for campus to provide support for the YMCA Dump & Run collections from our residence halls.

    If so, F&S will contribute a truck and driver this spring, but the long‐term solution needs to identify the appropriate funding source.

    Hi all, here's the beginnings of a logistical sheet for Residence Hall pickups. Dorm Pickups Sheet 2019

    It's ordered in rough zones, with dorms closest to each other clumped together. We can discuss more regarding times and what each day might look like in terms of pickups tomorrow. All of you should be able to edit the sheet, so please feel free to make changes if need be.

     

    In addition, here is a basic FAQ for donation sites with some info that might be helpful to you, but that can also be shared with the Resident Directors as well. We can make changes to this as well.

     

    Thanks everyone, and I'm looking forward to tomorrow!

    I was just on the phone with David about the meeting on Friday. I went ahead and reserved a room in Clark Hall for the meeting (room 222). We will plan on meeting in Clark Hall at 10:30, but David and I will touch base at the conclusion of my 9am meeting or your walkthrough which ever finishes first. If we can meet sooner, or during your rounds we will.

    Hi Marc,  Can we do a phone call with Bryan and the two of you at 10 Friday?  You may not be through all the locations yet, but that’s when both Bryan and I can do a call.

     

    Also, would you please send both of us any logistics plans you already have written up (even from previous years), so we can get a feeling for the driving needs?

  5. PWR007 Dump and Run recommendation - Submittal

    The PWR SWATeam submitted a recommendation stating, "We recommend a campus stakeholder lead an effort to expand and improve the effort to capture items during Move Out – collaborating with the YMCA on the Dump & Run. This action includes filling gaps in staff & volunteer coordination, campus space coordination, and facilitating vehicles and staff time to run them."

    See attached the SWATeam recommendation PWR007 Dump and Run complete with comments from all the PWR SWATeam members.

  6. YMCA leaders meet with sustainability staff

    Associated Project(s): 

    Emily Cross and Mike Doyle from the University YMCA met with Ben McCall from iSEE, Nancy Holm from ISTC, and Morgan Johnston from F&S to describe the history and process of the YMCA Dump and Run.  The program has been around for approximately 15 years, and a couple years ago they expanded collections to include the campus residence halls.  There are many opportunities to grow the program, and thereby reduce the waste going to landfills, but the YMCA staff are currently at capacity for managing the program.
