Those who were on campus last semester will most likely remember the end-of-year "Ham's Cram & Scram," where students from the Recycling Task Force collected recyclable/reusable items from residence halls. Now the fruits of the volunteers' labor will be for sale at the Cram & Scram tent sale on Aug. 26 and 27. The Recycling Task Force will be selling residence hall furnishings and appliances collected from last semester's departing students, including futons, rugs, fridges, microwaves, lamps, shelving and chairs. The sale will take place in North Lot from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. both days. A van will be available to transport large items to student residence halls. The annual Clinton Early Learning Center plant sale will take place at the same time and location.
The project was designed to reduce the College's end-of-year waste by recycling and reusing items that would typically be thrown out at the end of the academic year. In addition to the furniture collected, excess clothing was taken to The Salvation Army, bedding went to the Stevens-Swan Humane Society of Oneida County, food was delivered to the Clarks Mills Food Pantry and books, other paper, containers and the like were recycled at the Oneida-Herkimer Solid Waste Authority.
