UDon't Need It returns

Student move-out and reuse program scheduled May 22-June 7 on STAR Campus

Now celebrating its 12th anniversary, UDon’t Need It provides students who are moving out of University of Delaware housing or off-campus residences an opportunity to put items they no longer need to good use while also being friendly to the environment.

Students must present a valid student ID card and landlords must show proof of owning a Newark rental property. Others will be required to pay $10 per regular pick-up truck or car load of refuse, and $20 for truck or trailer.

The goals of the project are to reduce local landfill waste and to redirect reusable items to the community.

Volunteers at UD’s Science, Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) Campus location at 540 South College Ave. will help sort items for the Public Sale Days.

Items in good and reusable condition that will be accepted include sofas and loveseats, living room chairs, ottomans, dining tables, dining chairs and stools, coffee tables and end tables. Furniture items also include bookcases, storage units, cabinets, shelving units, entertainment centers, desks, futons and bed frames, dressers, mattresses and box springs.

Household goods include lamps, carpets and rugs, home décor items, housewares (including dishes, pots, pans and utensils), bedding and linens, fans, air conditioners, small appliances, large appliances, and outdoor, patio and lawn and garden items.

Electronics welcomed for donation include televisions, stereo systems, computers and components. Miscellaneous items include tools, toys and games, bicycles, sports and exercise equipment, books, school and craft supplies, clothing and unopened, nonperishable foods.

Operating hours for donations and disposals only are:

  • 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, May 22-25;
  • 4-8 p.m., Saturday, May 26; and
  • 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sunday, May 27, and Tuesday through Thursday, May 29-31.

The site is closed Memorial Day, Monday, May 28.

Additional hours for disposals are from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday through Thursday, June 2-7.

Open to the public, all-items-$10 sale days will be held from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Friday, May 25, and Thursday, May 31.
