In observance of Move Out-2013, Keep Southeast Ohio Beautiful, The City of Athens and Ohio University ask all students to donate food and goods to reduce trash, save money, and help those in need.
Now through Sunday, May 5th, several convenient drop-off locations are located throughout the city for you to donate items such as clothing, clean mattresses, furniture, kitchenware and unopened food.
Did you know that 80% of what is disposed of as trash is recyclable and re-usable? In 2012, students helped us divert almost 100,000 pounds of reusable/recyclable items from our landfills.
