BOZEMAN - With the end of the school year, law enforcement is noticing a trend among students that is not only cluttering up the streets, but it's illegal.
Officials say students are moving out of their rentals and leaving behind household items such as couches, box springs, tables and appliances. As you can see from the photos sent to us by law enforcement, these items have been left in alleyways and boulevards throughout the community.
Even if you have a "for sale" or "free" sign, this is illegal and can become costly for city officials or landlords who have to intervene, according to police.
There are a variety of second hand stores will gladly accept unwanted items such as the Goodwill, Sak's and the Salvation Army.
For heavily used unwanted items, you can pay a visit to the Bozeman Convenience Site located at 2143 Story Mill Road. The site accepts everything from regular municipal solid waste at $27 per ton, to items like dishwashers, bicycles, dryers and lawnmowers for $2 per item.
