Trash To Treasure


Trash To Treasure

In support of Saint Louis University's commitment to sustainability and the environment, the Office of Sustainability and Benchmarking along with the CSCE and Housing and Residence Life conducts the Trash To Treasure campaign. 

At the end of each semester, donation tents are set-up outside of residence halls, where students can donate gently used furniture, clothing, electronics or appliances that they do not wish to bring home.  New food and toiletry donations are also accepted.

Instead of being thrown out, all goods and materials are donated to community organizations such as Salvation Army, Campus Kitchen, St. Vincent de Paul Society, and other non-profits who then distribute them to those in need.

  • Trash To Treasure Collects Record Amount!

    The Spring Trash To Treasure drive was SLU's most successful yet, with nearly 13,000 lbs. of materials being diverted from the landfill and donated to the community!  The estimated dollar value of all materials donated was nearly $30,000 - congratulations to the SLU community for pulling together to make a difference for our community and environment!
