projectmoveout_websiteheaderJoin PROJECT MOVE-OUT: free bulk waste recycling initiative for Rutgers students living in New Brunswick

Rutgers University and the City of New Brunswick are partnering in Project Move Out to recover discarded furniture, appliances and textiles in order to keep these items out of landfills and reduce our carbon footprint.

Project Move Out provides for FREE curbside pick-up of bulk items ONLY for Rutgers students who pre-register between April 25 – May 22 (noon).  The collection will take place between May 23-25.  You will be assigned a day based upon your address. Items eligible for pickup include:

  • Appliances (refrigerators, window air conditioning units, microwaves)
  • Electronics (televisions, video game consoles, cell phones, computers, monitors, printers)
  • Furniture (mattresses, couches, chairs, tables, book cases, desks, rugs)

Register HERE.

 

Alternative bulk waste disposal options can be found below if you have an immediate need.

Benefits of participating in Project Move Out
