SUNY Oswego’s Leave Green sale, continuing 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday (May 24) and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday (May 25) in the Campus Center’s Swetman Gymnasium, takes days of collecting students’ donated food (already given to area food pantries), clothing, electronics, books and other goods, followed by more days for setup.

The effort diverted seven tons of items from the waste stream, compared with 4.85 tons last year, according to the college’s sustainability coordinator, Jamie Adams, and sustainability engineer, Mike Lotito.
