MANHATTAN, KS — Manhattan offered residents a little amnesty Friday when it came to unwanted furniture.

The Manhattan Fire Department and the Manhattan Good Neighbors at Kansas State paired up to give residents a safe place to discard their furniture. The program started six years ago to stop furniture from piling up in the streets during the busy move out period for college students.

This way, anyone could have an easy way to get rid of their furniture without consequences

“It originally started as an intent to prevent that and clean up Manhattan’s alleys, and then it grew every year to reaching out to those in need as well. so giving away furniture to those who need it to cleaning up the streets of Manhattan as well,” said Allie Henry, Student Program Coordinator, Manhattan Good Neighbors.

Anyone could come pick out up to 5 pieces for free starting at noon until 5 Friday at City Park. Any remaining furniture will be discarded properly by the Manhattan Fire Department.
