UNH yard sale a benefit for students, environment
More than 20,000 items will be up for grabs at the student-run sale held at the Whittemore Center.
The sale will be held Friday, beginning at 8 a.m. for an early entry fee of $5. Doors open to all at 9 a.m. and close at 5 p.m. The sale will continue on Aug. 24 from noon to 5 p.m. and on Aug. 25 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Alex Freid, a 2013 graduate, helped launch the program in 2011 after noticing piles of items he felt could still be used overflowing from Dumpsters as students moved out.
Fun decorations, posters, and old advertisements for food and drinks are also hot items.
“We hope to engender life-long sustainable living practices in today’s students. By actively participating in waste reduction programs in campus communities, we hope that students will see and understand the value of reusing items when possible, and recycling all else when necessary,” Freid said. “Many students throw things away because there are no easily accessible alternatives out there other than the Dumpster.”
