Volunteer for Waste Not!!

Salame, everyone! It’s the first day of August, and I imagine many of you all are on the last legs of your internships, jobs, summer reading lists, and the like. If you’ve somehow managed to avoid WesDrawal up until this moment, maybe Marj Dodson ’13 and Jack Hoskins ’12, Sustainability Interns extraordinaire, can remedy the situation.

Come have a blast with the Waste Not! crew during orientation and not only will you get to chill, lift, move, organize, and party with the stellar group of Waste Not! volunteers, but you’ll also receive:

  • early access to your housing
  • dibs on Waste Not! stuff
  • great free meals
  • community service hours

More info after the jump:

If you don’t know already, Waste Not! is a program that collects unwanted items from departing students all across campus in the spring and then sells back these usable items to returning students and arriving freshmen in the fall. It aims to reduce the overall amount of waste that Wesleyan students produce by keeping our unwanted furniture, clothing, books, appliances, etc. out of the dumpster and into someone else’s hands. The profits from the sale go to local charities and to Wesleyan Sustainability efforts. It’s an amazing program to be involved in and seeing the results of your hard work is so rewarding. The sale is held the first weekend that we arrive back on campus—September 3rd-4th.

[Here’s what] we will need from volunteers!

  • Attendance every day from August 30th-September 4th
  • An estimate of around 5 hours of work per day

Please sign up as soon as possible as spots are running out and we have to get our list into ResLife soon!! If you have any questions, feel free to email us at wesustainability[at]gmail[dot]com.

Seriously, guys. If I were you, I wouldn’t miss out on this opportunity to start stalking your favorite freshmen from the facebook group do good work and get rewarded with free stuff.

Dates: Aug. 30 – Sept. 4
Place: On campus!
Cost: I’m out of practice when it comes to putting witty things here.
