Donation and recycling encouraged during August Moving Days

Get ready for curbs in downtown Madison to be crowded with furniture, clothing and more, as renters move and leave unwanted items behind when leases expire in mid-August. But there's a better option than the curb during August Moving Days. From Aug. 12-17, there will be several sites where individuals can donate their unwanted items and take what they need for free. These sites also will host non-perishable food collection bins for The Open Seat Food Pantry and an e-waste recycling drop-off. The UW–Madison Office of Sustainability and We Conserve are partnering with the City of Madison, Open Seat Food Pantry, Goodwill Industries and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul to collect and recycle.
