By the numbers – 2014

Moving Days 2014 was a great success! With expanded collection sites, including twice as many high-rise apartment buildings as in 2013, the partner organizations diverted more than 50 tons of unwanted items away from the landfill. A huge thank you to all of our co-organizers and volunteers!
