Freenew is an innovative environmental solution for universities and other transient establishments.
"Freenew was born out of frustration watching dumpsters fill with many useful items. I felt as students and citizens of the future we could do much better to reduce or recycle these items. Freenew is making a small but very important impact on the wasteful habits"

Every day hundreds of tons of usable items are incinerated or plowed under in landfills throughout the country.
Freenew, a student operated program has created a simple cost-effective recycling project that we have successfully implemented on the SUNY Purchase campus for the last two years.
Check out the map above to find exact locations of the storage units!
They are placed near the on-campus dormitory and apartment dumpsters for ease of the donation process. Keep in mind, this program is ground-breaking and we are creating a new model for campus recycling/upcycling habits.
We emptied the pods in record time this year. Hope everyone enjoys their "free" and "new" to them items!
