Geneseo Gives Back


What is the Geneseo Gives Back program?

Launched in 2005, the Geneseo Gives Back program is designed to reduce the waste created by the needless discarding of usable items when the residence halls close in May. 

What happens to your stuff when you leave?  The choice is yours.  Look for our cardboard boxes and signature blue recycling containers to appear in your residence hall on Monday, April 25.


What can be donated?

What we can take:

  • non-perishable, unused foods
  • clothes -- washed and in wearable condition
  • household appliances in working condition (e.g., clocks, radios, irons; with accompanying chargers, if applicable)
  • small wastebaskets

What we can't take:

  • carpets
  • computer monitors
  • underwear
  • socks
  • refrigerators
