It's almost the end of the year, and for many students that also means it's almost time to move. If there's items you don't have room for as you pack up, don't just throw them away - UW Recycling has several ways to give unwanted itmes to someone else who could use them.
Students in the on-campus residence halls can find a SCRAM (Student Cleanup, Recycle and Moveout) station in their building (list of locations here). Every residence hall has a donation station where clothing, food and other items can be dropped off throughout finals week, from June 5-12. All donations will be sorted and benefit the University District Food Bank, Northwest Center and Real Change.
UW students living north of campus can drop off their unwanted items during the Husky Neighborhood Cleanup for recycling, donation or disposal. Student ID is required, and trucks will be stationed at 17th Ave. NE & NE 47th St. on June 8, 9 and 12 from 1-5 p.m. This is an opportunity to properly get rid of items like old furniture, electronics, appliances, recyclables and even trash. Reusable items will be donated, and anything that has reached the end of its useful life will be recycled or properly disposed of.
