The 2016 Cram & Scram rummage sale got good results, says Ben Kunka, head of UNCG Waste Reduction and Recycling. An improvement over last year.

And whatever didn’t sell was donated to Goodwill.

The earliest people say they got there at 2 a.m., he said They were well prepared. They brought a cart. Others told him a line was forming at 6 a.m. The doors opened at 8 a.m. “They were lined up for a long time.”

Even some incoming freshmen were there, purchasing items for their dorm rooms.

People still ask him, “Everything is really two for a dollar?”

Yep. And by doing that, the items are recycled and reused. That’s less waste in the landfill.
