Student Renters Encouraged to Start Cleaning Now
Posted Date:
Students and seasonal renters should plan now to dispose of items that they don't want to transport home for the summer.
At the end of each school year, students often seem caught unaware that all the “stuff” they’ve accumulated over the course of the school year must either be moved to their summer home, thrown away or otherwise disposed of. This often results in piles of garbage and old furniture sitting on curbs in Maryville for several weeks until landlords arrange to have them picked up. Most of the cost for this cleanup comes out of the renters' housing deposits, so it is in renters' interest to start disposing of items throughout this month rather than waiting until finals week.

Here are some suggestions to keep Maryville clean and green:
    If you can’t take it with you…
