SMOP - Thursday, May 23 from 11 to 3 on Loomis & Buell Streets

What is SMOP?

The "Spring Move Out Project" (SMOP) provides students and area residents the opportunity to bring clothing, books, household items, furniture, and non-perishable food items to this community recycling and swap event. This popular street swap encourages reuse, recycling, and overall better management of unwanted items during move-out each May.

Furniture in poor condition and other trash is accepted for a fee ($5 to $25) at dumpsters on site. Items not claimed during the event will be donated to local charities.

The Spring Move Out Project (SMOP) is a partnership of Burlington Code Enforcement, University of Vermont, Champlain College, CEDO, Chittenden Solid Waste District, ReSOURCE, Casella Waste Systems, and Myers Container Services
