UNH Trash 2 Treasure (T2T) is a student-run social enterprise with the mission of assisting students, UNH and the local community in reducing waste. T2T’s main initiative is to run the move-out collection and yard sale program, reducing unnecessary discarded items from entering landfills. Consequently, T2T significantly reduces trash removal costs for the University and provides families back-to-school savings at move-in weekend yard sales. The success of this social enterprise is achieved through strong student leadership and passionate, active volunteers who want to promote sustainability.

      

Trash 2 Treasure collects massive quantities of furniture and dorm  items from students at the end of each school year to recycle or resell  them at discounted prices the following Fall. Since its inception, T2T  has saved students over half a million dollars in back-to-school  expenses and diverted over 174 tons of waste from entering landfills.
