By the Numbers / Re-Coop Results
Dorm Life Recycled


At the end of each academic year, departing students leave behind shoals of fridges, lamps, rugs, fans and hangers. No longer discarded by the College, these left-overs are now collected when the residence halls are cleaned out and brought to Re-Coop, Pomona’s own student-organized thrift store, to be sold for nominal costs to arriving students in the fall. Here’s a list of some of the items that were rescued from landfills this year and passed along to new owners.

79 refrigerators
17 microwaves
64 fans
100 lamps
39 rugs
25 chairs
27 couches
19 tables
26 ethernet cables
31 extension cords
