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 York, Sehome and Happy Valley. One collection point will be set up in each neighborhood and students will be encouraged to bring their donation items, recyclable materials, and landfill items to that point for collection and disposal 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, 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 high densities of student residents have been littered with improperly discarded items at the end of each academic quarter and the close of spring quarter when many students leave the area for the summer. The WWU Move-Out Madness program provides an opportunity for students to donate reusable items, recycle materials, and dispose of landfill waste properly. Reusable items will be donated to a local non-profit organization.
