Apartment move-out waste reduction volunteers sought

The city of Davis is signing up volunteers for the 2013 Apartment Move-Out Waste Reduction Program.

As UC Davis students leave their leased apartments in August, an assortment of household goods, from couches to clothing, begins its way to the Yolo County landfill. To prevent good, reusable material from being landfilled, the city of Davis Public Works Department Recycling Program is again teaming up with apartment managers to provide an alternative way for residents to get rid of their stuff — the annual Apartment Move-Out Waste Reduction Program.

The program places “donation stations” next to apartment dumpsters, and apartment residents are encouraged to donate items they no longer want. Local nonprofits working with the city also stop by and take what they want.

Donation stations will be set up Aug. 28 and will remain until Sept. 1. During that time, volunteers are needed to help keep the donation stations tidy; place cushions on sofas, stack books, bag up donated clothing, and sort donated items such as clothing, housewares, food and kitchenware.

Volunteers are asked to commit to working a minimum of two hours, must fill out the required paperwork and attend one of three training meetings at the Manzanita Room at the Hallmark Inn, 110 F St.: 6 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 1; 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 9; or 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 13.

For more information, call 530-757-5686 or email [email protected] Nonprofit groups that are interested in receiving donations of clothing, furniture, food and housewares from the move-out are also encouraged to contact Public Works.
