Post-Landfill Action Network Breaks Records, Attracts Donor

In late August, UNH’s third annual yard sale, put on by PLAN’s pilot program Trash 2 Treasure, took place to encourage new and returning students at the school to opt for used items when furnishing and decorating their dorm rooms and apartments. This event was the largest yard sale the group has hosted yet, with $22,000 raised and about 45 tons of usable materials diverted from landfills. All items sold at the sale were collected at the end of the previous semester in May. The three-year total for waste diverted from landfills now stands at 110 tons.Kathryn Sukalich,
