Plastic Carts for the End of the College Semester

It’s time to celebrate! Another successful school semester has come to a close, which means there is only one more thing to do – oversee student move-out. Moving out at the end of the college semester can be a stressful and overwhelming experience, especially when students have accumulated a lot of belongings throughout the year. During this time, plastic carts can be a valuable tool to transport and organize the belongings of the students that attend your university. Diversified Plastics Inc. manufactures a wide range of plastic carts, including commercial utility carts, commercial recycling containers, and other helpful college moving carts.


Convenience: Commercial recycling containers, for example, are typically larger and more durable than standard recycling bins, which means they can hold more recyclable materials and can be placed in high-traffic areas where students, faculty, and staff can easily access them.

Sustainability: Using commercial recycling containers and utility carts on campus can help to reduce the amount of waste that is sent to landfills, which is better for the environment. Recycling also conserves natural resources by reducing the need for new raw materials.

Cost savings: By recycling more materials, colleges and universities can save money on waste disposal fees. Additionally, some commercial recycling programs offer financial incentives for recycling, which can further reduce costs.

Education: Commercial recycling containers and utility carts can be labeled with clear and concise instructions on what can and cannot be recycled, which can help to educate students, faculty, and staff about the importance of recycling and proper waste management practices.


Mobility: Our utility carts are lightweight and have wheels, making them easy to move around, especially when there is a large amount of stuff to transport through narrow dormitory hallways.

Space-saving: Plastic carts are compact, which makes them ideal for small dorm rooms or apartments with limited space.

Organization: College moving carts, such as utility carts or commercial recycling containers, allow students to organize their belongings into three necessary categories: take home, throw out, and recycle.

Durability: Plastic carts are sturdy and can withstand heavy items. Their long-lasting advantage makes them useable for the next semester and easy to clean.


Sort belongings: Before filling a college moving cart, sort items into categories such as trash, recyclables, and donation. Utility carts are practical for determining which items should go into a nearby dumpster, while commercial recycling containers can retain any leftover paperwork from the semester. Sorting things will make packing and removing items from the premises easier.

Load efficiently: Place heavy items at the bottom of the utility cart to ensure stability and balance. Use the upper half of the college moving carts for lighter items.

Label carts: To make it easier to find specific items, consider labeling each college moving cart with the category of items it contains, such as “trash” for utility carts or “recyclable” for your commercial recycling containers.

Secure belongings: Use bungee cords or straps to secure belongings on the cart and prevent them from shifting during transport.

Clean your cart: After unloading items, clean the college moving cart with a damp cloth to remove any dirt or debris and store it in a dry place.

Using college moving carts on campus can have a positive impact on both the environment and the campus community. Furthermore, utility carts, and commercial recycling containers can help make the end of the college semester less stressful and more organized.
