Green Move Out
Reduce Waste. Support Charity.
Every year during the summer, thousands of students move between properties or away from Durham. 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.
Green Move Out 2019
This year's Green Move Out has come to an end. We have been absolutely amazed with the volume of donations we have had this year.

The scheme started out in just one college in 2005, and it has run every year since, growing to include all our colleges, and students living out in the wider community. We have been awarded ‘Altogether Greener Environment’ in 2011 and 2015, from Durham County Council, and were 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.Malcolm Fallow, CEO East Durham Trust
