S.O.S Share our Stuff​

Share Our Stuff is Washington University’s annual event to protect the environment and support those in need in our community by sharing our unwanted goods. Each year during on- and off-campus move-out, our campus community is responsible for the disposal of a tremendous amount of usable goods. These goods can be reused by people in need within our campus community and throughout our surrounding neighborhoods. Share Our Stuff is the university-wide collaborative designed to make it easy for all students to recycle their unwanted items at move out in a manner that benefits the environment and our community.

Yard Sale

This is an effort by ARS and Quadrangle Housing to enable students to donate/exchange or sell reusable items. ARS Yard Sale will allow students to post their reusable items located around the Washington University in St. Louis campuses. Items to be accepted will include furniture, small appliances, electronics and other items.
