STUDENTS are being encouraged to donate any items which they do not want when they leave their homes at the end of the year.
Many items have been specified for collection including; most kitchen items, books, CDs, DVDs, clothes, unused toiletries, bicycles, and various non-perishable food.
Collection of items will commence during Summer Ball week and will continue sometime after for those who who are unable to do it then.
Postgraduate part-time officer Steve Marshall and environment and ethics officer Rob Abrams have organised the idea, with help of residential services.
Mr Marshall said: “The end of year collectionscheme is for students (in halls on campus and student village) where they can donate any unwanted items before they leave their accommodation, all donations will benefit charities within the local area.”
Charlotte Britton Swansea University students’ union welfare officer said: “I’m incredibly enthusiastic about the end of year collections as it’s a fantastic way to reduce waste when we move out for Summer.
“We all know that a lot of useful items get chucked away because we can’t take them with us.”
Any enquiries or details about the collection can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
