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.
