What is BC Clean?

BC Clean is a donation initiative overseen by the Office of Residential Life in collaboration with Custodial Services and the Office of Sustainability. Members of the BC Community have the opportunity to donate items in good condition, such as clothing, non-perishable food, books, appliances, as well as general household goods and furniture.  All donations are collected by local non-profit organizations who distribute them to individuals and families in the greater Boston community. Donation drop off locations are setup on the last day of classes during the Spring semester across Newton, Upper, and Lower campuses so students can donate items until they depart for Summer break.
