 The “Trash to Treasure” garage sale was held Sunday on the University of Texas campus at the Recreation Sports Center. It serves as the primary fundraiser for the UT Campus Environmental Center, which promotes reuse, recycling and green choices. Senior chemical engineering student Robert Barnum hauls away a carpet he found during early rummaging. The event is popular among students arriving back on campus for the fall semester as a way to find that special one thing they are missing or to grab some cheap clothing. If you ever go arrive early because the good stuff goes fast.
