DormMania is a student-run, non-profit program to reduce waste at the College of William & Mary. In the Spring, students often throw out perfectly usable dorm items, generating needless waste. We collect these items, clean them, and store them over the summer. Come fall, we organize an annual yard sale to find homes for the discarded items and help new and returning students furnish their dorms on the cheap. All proceeds sustain the program the following year. Pass it on!
Every spring move-out, DormMania collects a wide assortment of perfectly usable, discarded items.

The DormMania team is composed of four “nuggets” who get seriously psyched about efficiency, corny jokes, and reducing waste. Now Jaya, Dakota, Joanna and Zhuowei have passed on their jobs and excitement to a new generation of nuggets. Caroline manages all the materials and physical stuff we need, Ryan coordinates all the volunteers, Julia serves as the administrative and public point person, and Jena handles media and advertising. Several new nuggets are joining the team for the 2016-2017 school year– stay tuned to hear about their brilliance.

Year-round, most hazardous materials can be recycled through the Department of Environment, Health and Safety. Additionally, there are locations across campus, such as Swem Library, where you can drop off items such as batteries, cell phones, toner cartridges, and plastic bags to be recycled. During DormMania’s collection, all clothing is donated to FISH, mattress pads are recycled through the facilities of Residence Life, and items that do not apply for dorm room living are donated to Goodwill.
