Mid-Year Move-Out Recycling and Reuse Resources

Packing for a mid-year move-out? Consider donating your unwanted items instead of throwing them in the dumpster. Reusable furniture can be offered for reuse at “Salvage Sheds” located at four Orange County Solid Waste Convenience Centers. Computers, computer peripherals, and other electronics can be recycled at the Orange County Landfill on Eubanks Road in Chapel Hill. Clothing and household items in good condition can be donated to local thrift or consignment stores. Unopened cans and boxes of non-perishable food items can be donated to the Inter-Faith Council Food Pantry in Carrboro. Visit the Office of Waste Reduction and Recycling and Orange County’s Student Move-out Waste Reduction, Reuse, and Recycling Resource to learn how to donate, dispose of, or recycle a specific item.
