Are you trying to pack for the summer but burdened with too much stuff? Don’t trash it, donate it! As part of an effort to reduce waste and save valuable items from the incinerator, the Tufts Facilities Department sponsors Jumbo Drop. JD has placed donation boxes in all the dorms, apartments and most small houses. We even have a box for off-campus students to participate. The box is accessible Monday-Friday from 10am-7pm at the Tufts Institute of the Environment in the rear of Miller Hall.

We accept almost anything reusable. Click here for a complete list of what we accept.


Donations will be sorted, partially donated to local charities and the remaining goods stored over the summer for a yard sale on Labor Day. The yard sale offers students low priced dorm goods. Proceeds of the sale continue to fund this worthwhile cause.
