The annual "Take It or Leave It" program -- TIOLI, for short -- is a terrific solid waste diversion program and an effective fundraiser. At the end of each academic year, students and staff in the Resource and Environmental Management Program (REMP) and members of the Ithaca College Environmental Society (ICES) team up to place collection bins into lounges in each residence hall, in the laundry room in the Garden Apartments, and in the community building at College Circles.

Residents are encouraged to leave in the collection bins still-usable items they don't want to take home: room decorations, linens, posters, school supplies, appliances, equipment, non-perishable food, cleaning items, and clothing -- items they might otherwise be tempted to just toss into the Dumpsters.
