Spring Move Out Project (SMOP)
The 2013 SMOP event will take place on Thursday, May 23 from 11am – 3 pm on Loomis and Bradley Streets in Burlington.
SMOP is a collaborative effort by the City of Burlington, the University of Vermont, Chittenden Solid Waste District, ReSOURCE, Champlain College, Burlington neighborhood groups and landlords, Casella and Myers Container.
During the one day SMOP event, Burlington students are encouraged to bring the following items in good condition to the special collection/community swap sites:
- Clothing (must be clean and dry)
- Household items
- Non-perishable food
Items not claimed during the event will be donated to local charities, including ReSOURCE, Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program, and the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf, among others.
Furniture in poor condition and other trash will be accepted for a fee at dumpsters. These dumpsters will be available only during SMOP.
Those who can’t make it to SMOP should consider donating items directly to one of the organizations listed above or check out our reuse options page. Some may even pick up. Certain items are also accepted at CSWD Drop-Off Centers, though fees may be charged. Looking for stuff at bargain prices (i.e. FREE) and can’t make SMOP? Stop by one or all of CSWD’s Drop-Off Centers and ‘shop’ at the ReUse Zone.
