Community clean-up to cut curbside collection

A church near the UWindsor campus is co-ordinating an effort to help students clear out at the end of the school year.

Rev. Scott McAllister, pastor at the University Community Church, 2320 Wyandotte Street West, says volunteers are ready to pick up furniture and other large items from outside student housing through the neighbourhood.

“We ask that they leave it on the porch or beside the house, and we will load it up as our truck travels down the street,” he says.

Members of the Future Entrepreneurs Association at the Odette School of Business have signed on to help, recruited by student Brandon Halin, who is organizing the logistics of the event.

“We’re blessed to have him helping us out with this,” McAllister says. “We look forward to pitching in at the end of term.”

The collection is set for Saturday, April 23, in the area bounded on the west by Huron Church Road, east by Campbell Avenue, north by Riverside Drive and south by College Avenue.

Students interested in having an item picked up may call or text Halin at 226-280-7983 or e-mail
