Don’t Trash It! is Elon University’s end-of-year move-out program that encourages students, faculty and staff to donate items at various donation stations throughout campus.

Please choose a two-hour shift any time between the hours of 9 am to 5 pm; a Don't Trash It! Coordinator will reach out with additional information for your shift.

Volunteers are needed to help collect items or monitor trucks.  Volunteers will work with a student Don't Trash It! Coordinator at the beginning of their shift to be trained on how to properly sort donation items.  Volunteers should wear close-toed shoes and comfortable, weather-appropriate clothes.  

Volunteers receive a free t-shirt and reusable water bottle (while supplies last).
