Spring quarter is nearly over, which means students will be packing up in preparation for summer moves. Often, this means discovering that you have more stuff than you can (or want to) take with you, but don't throw those unwanted items away! UW Recycling is making it easy for students to donate or dispose of unwanted items.

For students in residence halls, SCRAM (Student Cleanup, Recycle and Moveout) provides an opportunity to donate unwanted items to local charities. Students can find donation stations at all on-campus residence halls during finals week, June 6-11.

Last year, SCRAM collected 28.7 tons of reusable items which went to local charities and non-profit organizations. Nearly anything can be donated, from small pieces like books and clothing, to large items such as furniture or electronics. Learn more with this UWTV feature:

For those students who live in the north campus area, the Husky Neighborhood Cleanup provides free recycling, disposal and donations of unwanted items. Trucks will be at 17th Ave. NE & NE 47th St. to collect unwanted items for recycling, donation and disposal on June 9-10 and June 13 from 1-5 p.m. (or until trucks are full). Bring all unwanted items so that they can be donated or disposed of properly. UW student ID required.
