SCRAM: (Student Cleanup, Recycle and Moveout) is a UW program that captures unwanted items from thousands of departing students who live in the UW residence halls and apartments. The goal of SCRAM is to divert reusable goods from the landfill and donate the items, such as non-perishable food, clothing, household items, toiletries and electronics to charitable organizations. All donation stations include collection containers to separate items as well as a space for donating large items like furniture.
UW Recycling and UW Housing & Food Services (HFS) custodial teams monitors and collects donations from the stations during the week event. Items are directed to various charitable organizations. SCRAM is organized by UW Recycling in collaboration with UW Housing & Food Services.
