West Virginia University and the City of Morgantown are making it easier for students as they move out of their on and off-campus housing throughout the next two weeks.

WVU is collecting gently used items through the United Way Blue and Gold Mine Sale. Students and community members are asked to give up their unwanted household items to the sale to benefit the United Way of Monongalia and Preston Counties.

Students are welcome to donate furniture, clothes, linens, bedding, rugs, lamps, desks, books and much more.

Donation stations of “pods” to donate to the Blue and Gold Mine Sale can be found at all residence halls, the WVU Student Recreation Center, the Seneca Center, Chateau Royale, Grant Avenue, “Mountaineer Station”http://transportation.wvu.edu/mountaineerstation and the intersection of Prospect and Spruce Streets.

These items will be used to hold one of the largest rummage sales in the state on May 25 from 7 a.m. to noon. Credit cards will now be accepted. Admission is free after 8:30 a.m. Early bird admission before that is $4.

The City of Morgantown has also placed blue dumpsters around town for students who pay residential rates for their regular weekly trash pickup to use when cleaning out apartments as part of the Student Move-Out Dumpster Program. These dumpsters can be found at Grant Avenue, Beverly Avenue, McLane Avenue, Willey Street, Garrison Avenue and Brockway Avenue. These will be removed on May 14-15.

Carpet, tree limbs, construction materials, car parts, batteries, televisions, computers, air conditioners, refrigerators (unless tagged by a certified technician), paints, tires and other hazardous materials will not be accepted in the dumpsters.

Below is end-of-the-semester information for dining halls, libraries, the Mountainlair, residence halls and the Student Recreation Center.
