Every year, RIT students throw out over 100 tons of goods during move-out. The following fall, incoming students purchase the same items. The cycle continues, and usable items sit in landfills.

We set out to change this cycle, and reduce waste.

2018 COLLECTION VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

April 29th - May 13th

A Move-Out Collection, Move-In Sale

SPRING COLLECTION

May 1st - 12th


Students donate their unwanted items as they move out. Collection points are located in dorm lounges and near dumpsters at RIT apartments. Items collected are appropriately sorted to be donated to local non-proifts or to be stored over the summer for the fall sale.

FALL SALE

August 21nd - 24th


The Goodbye, Goodbuy! sale provides students with a variety of goods for thrift store prices. The proceeds from the sale go to funding Goodbye, Goodbuy! for next year, and to other Sustainability projects at RIT.

Goodbye, Goodbuy needs volunteers throughout the process. If you can help out, sign up below! More shifts will be added as we need them.
