Event Description

Sign up to volunteer here: moveoutatx.org/volunteer Austinites, MoveOutATX need your help! Volunteer with us to accept gently-used items, such as furniture, cleaning supplies, clothing and more (moveoutatx.org/items) to be donated to nine participating reuse organizations (moveoutatx.org/reuse-orgs). Shifts last 2.5 hours, and the ability to lift 50 lbs. is preferred (not required). Participants and volunteers will receive a sticker, redeemable for perks (moveoutatx.org/perks) like discounts and freebies at over 25 local eateries and retailers! Water refills and snacks will be available at your check-in headquarters location. NOTEWORTHY ITEMS: · *Please note* Items received at stations are for the participating reuse organizations. · This volunteer opportunity is outside · A tent for shade will be provided · Please dress appropriately for the weather (closed-toe shoes, sunscreen, sun protection) · Bring a refillable water bottle · Bring your own gently used items to drop-off if you wish! MoveOutATX is a community effort to keep good stuff out of the landfill during the university move-out season. The program kept 62 tons of material out of landfills and provided over $150,000 in economic value to our local economy in 2018. We hope to top that this year! MoveOutATX is facilitated by the City of Austin in partnership with the UT Office of Sustainability, Keep Austin Beautiful and the State of Texas Alliance for Recycling.
