Pilot project aims to keep student move-out clean and green
The West Summit Neighborhood Advisory Committee has assembled resources for off-campus students to donate, dump or recycle their belongings after spring semester.
Along with Neighborhood Relations, WSNAC wants to encourage student-renters to leave our neighborhood and your properties in tip-top shape.
Among the ideas for student-renters:
- Recycle appliances and electronics at designated businesses or city-approved pick-up spots.
- Avoid leaving unusable furniture in the alleys or boulevards of the neighborhood.
- Donate usable furniture and other large items to nonprofits such as the Salvation Army or the Lupus Foundation — perhaps through coordinated pickups.
How can landlords help?
- Be in touch with neighborhood liaison Amy Gage (651-962-6123) if you’re interested in being part of a coordinated effort to donate or recycle large items. She can help contact the nonprofits and put landlords in touch with one another.
- Communicate now with your student-renters who will be moving out by May 31. Let them know you expect the property and the neighborhood to be left clean.
- Send them a list of resources where they can donate clothing and household items, non-perishable food, books and more. Click here for the Green Move-Out list.
Thank you for your collaboration in what we hope will be a win-win initiative for all:
- A smooth student move-out,
- A clean property for you
- A neighborhood free of debris in the alleys and on boulevards.
