Green Move Out

Reduce Waste. Support Charity.

Every year during the summer, thousands of students move between properties or away from Durham and Stockton. During this time a large amount of waste is generated in our Colleges and in the local area.

The Green Move Out Scheme is a partnership between Durham University, Durham County Council, Durham Constabulary and County Durham Furniture Help Scheme (CDFHS) which aims to reduce waste and to support local charities including County Durham Furniture Help Scheme, Durham Palestine Educational Trust, East Durham Trust and A Way Out.


Since its launch in 2005, the Green Move Out Scheme has grown in size and effectiveness year on year. It has been promoted to other North East Universities, as well as forming part of the Zero Waste in Halls of Residence project.

The scheme also achieved an Award at the Altogether Greener Environment Awards 2011 and 2015, and was a Finalist in the EAUC Green Gown Awards in 2016 and 2017.

Thanks again for your continued support... the donations are making a significant difference to people's lives.
