CHARLESTON, SC -

Rental trucks line the streets of Charleston this week as thousands of college students move out and in before a new semester.

The Post and Courier reports five tons of trash were removed last week as students left everything from sofas to old TVs behind. New leases usually begin the first of the month, which is Thursday.

Some residents say the College of Charleston and landlords should pay more of the cost of cleaning up. The college contributes $2,000 a year to the effort.

An official from the solid waste management office in Columbia says the problem isn't as bad when University of South Carolina students move out of apartments before a new semester. That's because the city is more spread out and more students live in campus dorms.
