Event Details:

To minimize waste when students move out of their dormitories during the summer, CUHK hostels have recycling programmes in place and encourage students who need to move out of hostels to donate their unwanted belongings at collection locations. The collected items will either be redistributed to hostel residents in the coming semester or donated to people who need them via NGOs.
