You don’t have to take it with you, but please don’t leave it in the lane

It happens in every college town at the end of the academic year. As students move out of their apartments for the summer, possessions that are no longer needed or that won’t fit in the car are left on the curb. Or in Savannah’s case, in the lane. While some of these items will be claimed by passers-by, a summer showr can render upholstered furniture, electronics and other things pretty much useless. A program underway now will help divert some of what’s left behind from the landfill to a more beneficial destination

“In coordination with the City of Savannah and Keep Savannah Beautiful, the SCAD design for sustainability program is co-sponsoring an end-of-the-year collection of furniture, clothes, appliances and other household goods from all students who live off campus. All collected items will benefit Goodwill Industries. Donate from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. each day until June 4 at the old Sears building on Henry Street between Bull and Drayton streets. Also, look for dump trucks that will make rounds from Habersham Street to Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., and Henry Street to East Waldburg Street.”

For more information, call the City of Savannah Public Information Office at 651-6410.
