Moving Donations and Recycling

August 12, 2012 10:04 PM

Moving out is often a chaotic time. Here are several helpful resources from the CityL


Many renters find that they have many usable items they no longer need such as clean clothing, functional household items, small furniture, unopened nonperishable food, and kitchen items. Instead of throwing those items out when you move, we have organized several places where you can donate usable items in the downtown area.

Please, no sofa sleepers, televisions, computer equipment or junk, just items that can be reused.

Just bring your usable goods to the following location on the dates listed and they will be put to good use by St. Vincent De Paul.

Gorham & Henry (Holy Redeemer Church Parking Lot)
120 W. Johnson St. - Just off State St.
Saturday August 11th 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Sunday August 12th, 1 p.m. until 5 p.m.
Monday August 13th 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.

U Haul Parking Lot
602 W. Washington AV.
Saturday August 11th 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Sunday August 12th, 1 p.m. until 5 p.m.
Monday August 13th 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.
Tuesday August 14th 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. (U Haul location ONLY)

Mills and Spring (North Corner UW Lot 51)
Saturday August 11th 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Sunday August 12th, 1 p.m. until 5 p.m.
Monday August 13th 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.


Do you have an item to donate that is too big to carry? No way to get your donations to to the sites? Fear not, we are offering free pick up of your donations. For free pick up before August 11th call (608) 278-2920. For pick up August 12th through the 14th call (608) 313-4086 or flag down one of our donation trucks driving through the area.


An e-waste recycling site will be set up in Lot 51 to accept electronics, working or not, including computers, monitors, TVs, phones, small appliances, and game systems, for recycling by the UW–Madison We Conserve program. THIS SERVICE IS ONLY OFFERED AT THE LOT 51 SITE


The university of Wisconsin We Conserve program is sponsoring a donate and take event on campus. People on the move can drop off items for reuse and search for materials they need.

Location: UW–Madison Lot 92 (214 N. Brooks St.)
Friday, Aug. 10 – Wednesday, Aug. 15, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Thursday, Aug. 16, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.


The Streets Division will be emptying refuse and recycling carts everyday between Monday August 13th through Friday August 17th. Fill up your carts according to the guidelines below and roll them to the curb anytime this week.

We will empty your carts so you can fill them up again. You may fill up your carts and roll them out as often as you like during the week of August 13th.

Using your carts for refuse and recycling is easier than lugging bags or material to the curb. It will keep your neighborhood cleaner and make this year's move out the easiest ever.


It also means that several hundred tons of trash will make its way to the curb in a three day period. The Streets Division needs your help to make this year's move out as orderly as possible. Please follow these guidelines when placing trash and recycling at the curb during the move out.

Do NOT put trash in cardboard boxes. Boxes must be flattened and bundled for recycling.
Keep refuse and large items separate when placed at the curb.
Nothing but recycling in your green recycling cart. Do not put recycling in your tan refuse cart.
Put all recycling at the curb in the green recycling cart or clear plastic bags. No loose piles of recycling.
Do Not Take The Recycling or Refuse Carts. The Carts belong to the City and must remain behind when you move. There will be carts at your new apartment if you will be using City recycling services.
Do not pile bagged trash or large items around your recycling or refuse carts.
Put all refuse at the curb in your tan refuse cart or trash bags. No loose piles of trash/garbage.
Do not pile bagged trash or recyclables on top of furniture or appliances.
Keep larger metal items separate from other material so that it can be recycled.
Most appliances, including microwaves, require a fee for collection.

Call (608)246-4532 East or (608)266-4681 West of Park.
