With the MSU school year at an end, and students moving out of their rentals, police are starting to see a large number of household items such as couches, box springs, tables, and appliances left in alleyways and boulevards throughout our community.

Although this has become a common practice in Bozeman, it is actually illegal, regardless if you have a FOR SALE or FREE sign posted on these items!

If tenants leave town or are not located, the clean-up of these items become the responsibility of the property manager or owner, which can be costly if the city must intervene.

If you are planning on moving out of your rental unit and have unused household items, please consider donating them to the variety of local second-hand stores in our community, such as Goodwill, The Salvation Army, or Sak’s, to name a few.

You could also make some money off these items, and sale them at the Super Garage Sale!
