Suggestions:

  • Begin to organize. Think about what you need for Spring (do you need boxes, can you move some items early), what friends might be interested in, what needs to be recycled or what can be donated.
  • Stop purchasing items you use infrequently. Common items in the trash at move out are partially used condiments, cereal, and pasta purchased late in the quarter.
  • Remove recyclables early. Recycling bins overflow during move out. Clear out extra papers and accumulated cans and bottles can help reduce clutter and leave room for last minute recycling.
  • Swap items with friends. Check in with hallmates and other friends and see if anyone is interested in that sweater you haven’t worn since last winter, the books for classes last year or that extra water bottle. Be creative, talk to your Res Life staff about organizing a local swap event.
  • Packing and early moving. Pack items you don’t usually use and, if possible, take some home early (like Mother’s Day or Memorial Day weekend). Taking items home early means the rest has a better chance of fitting in the car in June.
  • Special recycling. Return compost buckets to Housing Facilities. Wood, metal, rigid plastic, and household chemicals can be recycled. Contact ches.ucsc.edu/cruzfix or call 459-2663 for more information.
  • Donate what you can. Goodwill, Hope Services and 2nd Harvest partner with us to redistribute used items and food to the community. Look for advertising in May to learn how to donate these items.
  • Clean and sort your electronics. Mini-fridges need to be defrosted before you move them – ask your RA/CA/NA where you can do this. Request a pick up of unwanted electronics at ches.ucsc.edu/cruzfix, note if it works or not – to help us in our reuse/recycling process.
  • Clean what you can. Vacuum your room before finals. By finals week it may be broken or missing. Make sure drawers are emptied. Do not repair minor damage. Notify Housing Facilities at ches.ucsc.edu/cruzfix of major damage.
  • Take the rest home. Take the rest home.  Items left are thrown away, adding to the landfill in a process that has led to injuries to staff and student workers, helping reduce both of these.
