Faculty and Staff can participate in Take It Or Leave It Program

Each year, the Clarkson Take It of Leave It program diverts tons of valuable material from the landfill by diverting usable goods and materials to members of our community through local nonprofits. Please consider donating and/or volunteering this Spring during the student move-out season!  Faculty and Staff participation is highly encouraged!

The large TILI tent will be set up on the southlawn of the ERC from Friday, May 3rd until May 13th. You can drop off materials directly at this tent on work days between 10am – 4pm.
