Don’t Dump It! – Donate It!

From April 22nd - May 10th, a donation area will be set up in the central area or lobby of every Residence Hall. This area is where residents can donate items they don't want, can't believe they own, or simply don't have room for in their car.

These materials will be picked up by the FM&C Support Services staff and will be donated to local charities in ODU's name.


It's the end of April you've finished your exams and now it's time to pack and move out of your hall of residence. Packing your belongings becomes interesting as you run across:

  • A mini-fridge that you bought at the beginning of the year for your juices and snacks.
  • The 4 unopened, super-sized containers of laundry detergent that you thought you would need are jammed in the corner of your closet.
  • The wardrobe you have full of garments that you no longer want, can'tfit into or you'll never again wear.

You look at your small compact car noticing one problem: YOU DON'T HAVE ENOUGH ROOM FOR ALL THIS STUFF! Does this sound familiar? If so, Support Services has an alternative to throwing this great stuff away - Donate It!


The Facilities Management Support Services Department expresses our gratitude to everyone who supported our electronic recycling efforts for the campus and community. As we are rapidly approaching the end of our spring semester, we are excited about the opportunity to provide a successful departure for the students as they leave for their summer endeavors.
