About Goodbye, Goodbuy!

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!

A Move-Out Collection, and a Move-In Sale

Spring Collection, May 7th - May 16th, 2021: 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 16th - 20rd, 2021: 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 the following year, and to other sustainability projects at RIT.
