CCU to host Campus Salvage move-out program in May

Campus Salvage, a recycling and donation program administered by Coastal Carolina University's Sustainability Initiative at the end of the academic year, will take place at the University residence halls on campus and at University Place from noon to 10 p.m. May 2 to 6 and from 8 a.m. to noon May 7.

Before moving off campus, students are encouraged to place unwanted furniture, household items, home décor, clothing, linens, nonperishable food and electronics into PODS that will be placed next to all major dumpsters.

"We hope to see more students and their families choosing to donate their old stuff through this event instead of simply throwing it away in the dumpster," says Jennifer Sellers, sustainability coordinator at CCU. "It's about giving old items a new life and showing our support for the community and the environment."

The items collected from the program will either be donated to local charities, such as the Lowcountry Food Bank, the Horry County Animal Shelter and Fostering Hope, or sold at the Campus Salvage Community Yard Sale. The sale is scheduled for 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 14, in the parking lot at 370 Allied Dr. in the Atlantic Center across from the Coastal Science Center on CCU's East Campus.

Proceeds from the yard sale will be donated to the Sustainability Initiative fund, which supports Campus Salvage and student programs related to sustainability, recycling and waste reduction on the CCU campus.
