Eleventh annual Trash to Treasure sale set for June 2

After a year away from its home, the University's biggest town-gown recycling effort returns to Beaver Stadium to hold its award-winning spring sale. Each year, Trash to Treasure raises approximately $50,000 for the Centre County United Way and saves more than 60 tons of usable goods from the landfill.

This year’s event begins with an early bird sale at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 2 at Beaver Stadium (Gate B) on the University Park campus. The regular sale starts at 9 a.m.

Hundreds of volunteers — from individuals to community groups — take time during the month leading up to the spring sale to volunteer. Thousands attend sale day to find great deals on donated items, including a large selection of clothing, furniture, electronics, rugs and more.

Entering its 11th year, the program has raised $490,000 and saved over 600 tons of goods from being shipped to a landfill.

Volunteer opportunities begin on Wednesday, May 9. Many flexible shifts will be available. No previous experience is necessary and volunteers can receive a coupon that can be used to purchase items on sale day. It's fun and helps out a great cause.
