The idea is that at the end of each semester or academic year, many students simply dump or abandon their furniture/appliances, leaving universities to take care of disposal.
Reducing waste generated when people move from or to residences with a focus on colleges and universities.
The Washington event focused on diverting durable goods—such as furniture and small appliances—from the waste stream and reintroducing them into the economy.
reFort is unique in that it functions on demand and picks up durable goods otherwise intended for disposal, and refurbishes and resells them at a lower cost to new tenants, with a focus on college and university residences.
reFort secured initial funding from the CSD Social Venture Fund this year.
