Trucks stationed in the middle of Greek Row on Friday afternoon were ready to collect items students couldn't take with them for the summer, including goods like electronics and refrigerators.
UW Recycling, in partnership with Seattle Public Utilities and the UW Office of Regional Relations, is offering free disposal of unwanted items to students moving out of the north campus area as part of the Husky Neighborhood Cleanup. Reusable items are donated to local charities, and things that can't be reused are recycled or disposed of.
"It’s a great program," said David Speed, UW Recycling truck lead. "Someone can always use these items and put it to good use."
Speed was manning the donation station on Friday, next to collection vehicles from UW Recycling, Goodwill and Waste Management stationed at 17th Ave. NE & NE 47th St.
Dropping off items at the Husky Neighborhood Cleanup helps keep the north campus neighborhood clean, while providing a helping hand to local charities and people in need.
“It’s better than having things lying out in the street and alleyways,” Speed said.
As you're moving out, don’t forget to drop by with any unwanted items, including recyclables, donations, bulky items such as furniture and even trash. The last chance to do so is Monday, June 13, from 1 to 5 p.m. UW student ID is required.
