Roughly half the ["undergraduates" student] population ["Movers" moves] to ["Housing Guide" a new home]. Many people are stuck with not having a place to move in to until their new lease starts sometimes up to 4 or 5 days later. Every ["U-Haul"] is spoken for months in advance (get on the will-call lease) by people wanting to move in one trip or simply need a place to store their possessions overnight. The roads fill with stuffed ["automobiles"]. Sometimes mattresses fall off cars. ["Apartments" Apartment complexes] place giant dumpsters in the parking lot, which are summarily filled by moving students, desperate to lighten their loads. Others in houses abandon goods in over-flowing garbage cans, on sidewalks and neighbors lawns. In short a HUGE amount of trash, dejected valuables and stress is created.<br> + <br> + Moving day can be a real nightmare. Residents commonly spend two or three days packing, cleaning, and lightening their loads before they even start to move. Great quantities of stress are added to the equation for those who wish to recover their ["Security Deposit Survey" security deposit]. Cleaning commonly occurs until the last minute they have to vacate their residence (often midnight 8/31). Requirements for ["Carpet Cleaning" professional carpet cleaning] complicate logistics further.<br> + <br> + To ease the packing process, a lot of people simply throw stuff out instead of bringing it with them. One day they'll leave a couch on the side of the road only to go searching for a couch for their new ["housing guide" house] in a few days. It is not just big items that are wantonly discarded. Many people will throw out things like tea pots and brooms that they will soon have to replace. Added to the nightmare are all of the uncertainties found in moving to a new place. Is that mold toxic?<br> + <br> + To ["Dumpster Diving" dumpster divers], of course, it's like Christmas. August 30 is ''Moving Day Eve''. As one diver put it, "that's when Santa Claus comes around and fills the dumpsters with '''["candy"]'''." Class attendance drops by about one-third during Moving Day week which usually happens during the close of ["Summer Sessions" Summer Session II].<br> + <br> + * '''Although dumpster diving can be highly successful in Davis, during move-out time a lot of good, usable material is still ending up in the landfill.
