OSHSKOSH - Some area college students are giving back instead of throwing away, as the school year winds down.
As part of UW-Oshkosh's Move Out Days, gently used clothing, household items and furniture from dorm rooms will be collected and donated to Goodwill Industries.
The goal is to reduce what is dumped into a landfill, so they're offering containers next to the dumpsters on campus.
Organizers say it's a great option as students move out.
"Most students are going to do the reasonable thing, it's like you're moving up, moving out and you know maybe you have a pair of jeans that doesn't' fit, I mean why throw it out if you can give it to somebody," said Maureen Muldoon, co-chair of Campus Sustainability Council. "I think if you give them the option to do the reasonable thing and donate it, if you make that easy for them, they're gonna do it."
The drive runs Wednesday until 8 p.m., Thursday from 12-8, and wraps up Friday from 9-4 p.m.
