End of Term Collections 2019

It is time! The legendary SHRUB End of Year Collections are back!

Want to help steer leftover student stuff to where it’s needed? Want free stuff? Want a fun unusual day out with friends?

Every year, SHRUB Coop and the University of Edinburgh Accommodation Services, together with friends, team up to sort tonnes of stuff students leave at their accommodations. For two weeks, we dig through stuff, organising it so it goes where it should – much of it directly to the hands of new students at the start of the next term, with the rest of the items given to charities that can use them. Last year we diverted 17 tonnes of stuff!

This is a huge exercise in zero waste action and circular economy, and we need all your help!

When: 25th May – 1st June and 3rd – 7th June 2019, 9-5pm every day.

Where: Across the Edinburgh University accommodations around Edinburgh

We’ll be there for 2 weeks – you can give however much time you can from a few hours to a few days.

We will also be collecting outdoors in the Marchmont community 9th-12th May.
