At the end of every school year, Western Washington University and the City of Bellingham partner to sponsor the annual "WWU Move-Out Madness" event in several neighborhoods near the university.

This program targets neighborhoods with high student populations, including Happy Valley, Sehome, and York. One collection point will be set up in each neighborhood for students to sort their landfill, recyclables and donation items at no charge.

Each year the neighborhood collection sites, which are monitored by City of Bellingham Public Works staff to ensure that no hazardous or garden/yard waste is disposed of in the dumpsters, are at the following locations:

  • York Neighborhood – Franklin Park(South end), 400 block of Whatcom Street
  • Sehome Neighborhood – Laurel Park at Indian and Laurel Streets
  • Happy Valley Neighborhood – Gravel parking lot at 26th & Douglas

In the past, neighborhoods with a high population of student residents have been littered with improperly discarded items at the end of spring quarter as students are eager to move out. Move-Out Madness is a convenient way to responsibly dispose of unwanted items like garbage, recyclables and other reusable items. We aim to reduce waste on the streets of Bellingham and in landfills.
