Furniture Amnesty Day Friday, July 24

By Ryan Haxton

Furniture Amnesty Day is a communitywide service event that encourages the community to properly dispose of unwanted furniture, recycling it for others to use and keeping it out of the landfill. Manhattan Good Neighbors, a program of the Staley School of Leadership Studies at Kansas State University, will host the annual event Friday, July 24, in partnership with the city of Manhattan and Konza United Way.

This year's Furniture Amnesty Day will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in City Park at the Baker Field parking lot. The public is invited to drop off furniture on July 24 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you would like to donate your furniture but are unable to drop it off contact the city of Manhattan at hurtig@cityofmhk.com or at 785-587-2404. You also can schedule a pickup.

For those in need of furniture, the event opens to the public from noon to 5 p.m. on a first-come, first-serve basis. Registration begins at 8 a.m. and the public is encouraged to come early in order to sign up for time slots to pick up furniture.

If you would like to donate your furniture, know more information about where furniture can be picked up or dropped off please contact the city of Manhattan and members of Manhattan Good Neighbors at hurtig@cityofmhk.com or at 785-587-2404.
