Founded by students just three years ago, the annual UNH Trash 2 Treasure (T2T) yard sale has become a highly anticipated ritual of moving into campus. This year’s sale, in the Whittemore Center Aug. 23 to 25, 2013, features more than 20,000 items – all of them discarded by students moving out in the spring – for sale. The sale of college-living essentials lets incoming first-year and returning students furnish their rooms and apartments on the cheap and help the environment.
