The fall move-​​in period is in full swing on campus, but stu­dents won’t have to go far to stock up all kinds of dorm room essen­tials and other items. For that, they can thank their fellow Huskies.

The sixth-​​annual student-​​run Trash2Treasure yard sale will be held in the Curry Stu­dent Center Ball­room on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sus­tain­ability is at the heart of the yearly Wel­come Week event—organizers col­lect unwanted but still useful items from stu­dents during the spring move-​​out period, put them in storage for the summer, and then sell them back to the North­eastern com­mu­nity in the fall at a low cost. You can follow T2T on Twitter and Face­book for more information.

Funds raised at the yard sale, which is cash only, will sup­port stu­dent orga­ni­za­tions on campus, according to fourth-​​year stu­dent and lead orga­nizer Helen Ramsay, S/DMSB’16.

Every year this event gets bigger and bigger,” she said.

Ramsay is on the Trash2Treasure com­mittee within the Husky Envi­ron­mental Action Team, a student-​​run orga­ni­za­tion focused on envi­ron­mental sus­tain­ability and campus-​​wide carbon neu­trality ini­tia­tives. HEAT launched Northeastern’s T2T pro­gram six years ago when its stu­dent leaders rec­og­nized that so many dorm items are often trashed during spring move-​​out. The yard sale is a way to reduce waste and edu­cate the North­eastern com­mu­nity about sustainability.

So, what type of gently-​​used stuff will be avail­able? Trash2Treasure will fea­ture the annual abun­dance of kitchen­ware and dorm décor, as well as sports equip­ment, rugs, and var­ious elec­tronics. Some unique items include cos­tumes of char­ac­ters from the movie Top Gun and Michael Jackson gloves, an XBOX 360, and a set of workout equip­ment. In the spring, someone even donated a cactus, but it won’t be on sale Sunday; orga­nizers fig­ured locking it up in storage over the summer would create a prickly situation.

Said cactus was among the 15,899 pounds of donated items Trash2Treasure orga­nizers col­lected from stu­dents this past spring. Non-​​perishable food was donated to the Greater Boston Food Bank, and clothes were given to local orga­ni­za­tions and non­profits. Bed­ding items were donated to an animal shelter. The rest—it’s yours for the shop­ping at Trash2Treasure.

Ramsay offered some advice for back-​​to-​​school shop­pers: get there early to avoid the longer lines, though prices could drop as the event winds down. Unsold items will be donated to local com­mu­nity orga­ni­za­tions or prop­erly recycled.

Don’t go out and buy Tup­per­ware,” she said. “You can always get it at Trash2Treasure.”
