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 supports 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.
Each year 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
Unable to move your large furniture? Email ZeroWaste@wwu.edu to set up a pickup appointment and we will responsibly dispose of it for you for a $20 fee.
In the past, neighborhoods with a high population of student residents have been littered with improperly discarded items at the end of spring quarter as students are eager to move out. Move-Out-Madness is a convenient way to responsibly dispose of unwanted items like garbage, recyclables and other reusable items. We aim to reduce waste on the streets of Bellingham and in landfills while supporting our community.
