Creighton part of new effort encouraging dorm residents to recycle as they move out
Keely McNutt, a Creighton University sophomore majoring in exercise science, drops off an unwanted fan at the designated collection location inside Swanson, a Creighton residence hall. Creighton is one of five U.S. universities participating in a pilot Give & Go program set up by Goodwill and Keep America Beautiful to reduce the number of reusable items that college students might otherwise send to landfills when they move out of their dorms.

When students moved out of Creighton University's Swanson Hall, they left behind microwaves, vacuums, clothes, fans, rugs and a futon.
Their dorm rooms were clean — a resident adviser saw to that — but six cages along a wall in Swanson were filled with items to be donated to Goodwill.
