G.U. Move-Out Program Picks Up for Residents, Too

“Need to do some spring cleaning?” asks Georgetown University’s Office of Neighborhood Life, which runs the school’s annual Move Out Drive — free for students and for residents of Georgetown. Through May 31, the university will pick up bulk trash as well as items for donation to local charities.

All items must have either a pink tag for charity donations or an orange tag for bulk trash. All pickups must be scheduled in advance. Pick-up days are May 5, 6, 11, 12, 13, 16, 20, 23, 24, 27 and 31.

Bulk trash consists of large items for disposal such as furniture and appliances. Charitable donation items may include beds, books, kitchen supplies, toiletries, clothes, couches, dressers and non-perishable foods. For more information, click here.

During the Move Out Drive last year, the Georgetown community donated more than $45,000 of goods — which prevented 32 tons of waste and filled 16 moving trucks.

The program, now in its 10th year, fits with Georgetown University’s mission, according to the university: “Applying the university’s social justice mission to this challenge, Georgetown partners with local charity KEYS for the Homeless to collect and donate these unwanted items, providing every-day basic household goods to meet real life needs of those living in poverty in the D.C. region.”
