At the end of every school year, Western Washington University and the City of Bellingham partner to sponsor the annual “WWU Move-Out-Madness” event in several neighborhoods near the university.
This program targets neighborhoods with high student populations, including Happy Valley, Sehome, and York. One collection point will be set up in each neighborhood for students to sort their landfill, recyclables and donation items at no charge.
Students will drop off their items at one of the four locations listed above on June 9th from 10:00am – 3:00pm.
Non-profits will be allowed to take any donations that would benefit their organization between 3:00pm – 4:00pm and is first come, first serve.
The neighborhood collection sites are at the following locations:
- York Neighborhood – Harriet Spanel Park (previously called Franklin Park), 400 block of Whatcom Street
- Sehome Neighborhood – Laurel Park at Billy Frank Junior & Laurel Streets
- Happy Valley Neighborhood – Gravel parking lot at 26th & Douglas
- NXNW Student Living- 800 Viking Circle, Bellingham, WA 98229
