Get ready to "Give & Go" 

Save time while helping the local community and reducing waste! R&DE Student Housing has partnered with Goodwill to make it easy for you to "Give" your unwanted clothing and household items that are in good condition to others who can use them as you move out and "Go" on to your next adventure!

The items you drop off at one of over 100 convenient barrels or trailers in or near your residence will serve hundreds of local people in need through Goodwill while reducing waste sent to the landfill. Find out what you can donate here. Make sure to take the larger items (mattresses, futons, mini fridges, etc.) to your nearest Give & Go Zone (turquoise pins on map above). Borrow a dolly at your Housing Front Desk for easy transport!

Pledge to "Give & Go"

Commit to donate your unwanted items by pledging and spread the word to your friends. Take the Give & Go pledge and sign in where you Give & Go, and you'll be entered into a raffle to win one of ten $50 Amazon gift cards. Pledge here now!  

These “thank you” prizes are sponsored by the Office of Sustainability, in recognition of your support of a more Sustainable Stanford. Last year’s Give & Go participants diverted over 97,000 lbs of reusable materials from the landfill. With your help, Stanford hopes to divert even more to those in need!



Have items that can't be reused, but could be recycled?

Check out these Year-round Recycling Opportunities (items not accepted in Give & Go barrels/trailers):

Drop off unwanted bicycles at the Stanford Department of Public Safety (DPS). DPS may donate bikes to local non-profits, or sell them to departments and individuals with Stanford ID at their annual Bike Sales (which can be a great place to find a bike if you need one). Email or call 732-9633.
