Cal U, Borough Plan Clean-up Events

Apr 11, 2022

The Cal U Cupboard is accepting donations and the borough also will have options for those from our campus community who are preparing to do a little spring cleaning.


If you’re planning on doing some spring cleaning before the end of the spring semester, there are two options to consider for the donation, recycling and removal of items.

Cal U Cupboard

The Cal U Cupboard is accepting donations of new or gently used household items (appliances, utensils, cleaning products, etc.), as well as food and personal items by April 15.

Email calupcupboard@calue.du to schedule a time to have your items picked up or to drop them off.

Items that are collected will be available for free at Cal U’s Free Market Festival from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 19 outside of the Natali Student Center.
