At the beginning of each academic year a RESCUE sale is held. RESCUE stands for "Recycle Everything Save Colby's Usable Excess". Students can purchase furniture, appliances, and dorm supplies at low prices. At the end of the year, students can avoid waste by donating their usable unwanted clothes, furniture, etc. to the RESCUE program for the following academic year.

If you have any questions with regard to recycling or need to schedule a pick up, please contact PPD at 207-859-5000.
