Donation stations and free furniture coming to West Campus
Friday, July 22, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano
Next weekend, the city and UT Austin will join forces once again to accept donations from students who have unwanted furniture, clothing, (unopened) food, and other household items discarded during the moving process. The annual MoveOutATX event will have six donation stations throughout West Campus that will operate from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. from July 28 until July 31. This year, the initiative will also include a Free Furniture Market. According to a press release from the city, “Participating reuse organizations will transfer donated furniture to the ‘market’ located at UT Austin Wright-Whitaker Sports Complex. All Austinites may take what they would like and keep these items out of the landfill. Items will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants must be able to load and transport items themselves and will be required to sign a liability waiver. The market will be open to the public on the same days, from 2:30-7 p.m.” Those wanting to volunteer their time or participate in the event can find out more and sign up at MoveOutATX.org.
