At least we hope that’s a puke stain. The College of Charleston and Keep Charleston Beautiful are coordinating the sixth annual Move Out, Help Out drive as students dump their junk and head for home.

From the city:

In previous years, an estimated 30,000 pounds of reusable material has been collected.  Move Out, Help Out runs from April 26 – May 3, 2008, giving students an easy way to donate and recycle the items they no longer want.

The event will include the following:

Student Drop Sites will be set up in each of the College dormitories as well as the College’s historic student houses.  Items that are collected will be relocated to Berry Hall for disbursement and resale to the public.

May Bag Sale will be held on May 1 and 2 from 12-4 pm.  For a minimal fee, students and the community are invited to purchase a bag and fill it with collected items.  All money raised will go to promote service learning projects at the College of Charleston.

Local community service agencies have been invited to take items to meet the needs of their missions, clients, and offices free of charge.  Agencies can visit the collection center on May 1 or 2 from 12-4 pm.  All remaining items will be donated to the Salvation Army for resale.

Move Out, Help Out:

Impacts the goals of keeping the streets clean and safe while recycling and reusing bulky items that would otherwise flood the landfills.  As a result of the Move Out, Help Out, trash is reincarnated to keep Charleston beautiful–even at the end of the semester.
