University YMCA will hold community collections and the Big Sale this August. All collections and the sale will be held at the U of I Stock Pavilion, in cooperation with the College of ACES and Dept. of Animal Sciences.
Dump and Run keeps over 30 tons of used, quality goods out of Champaign-Urbana’s dumpsters and landfills each year. This project reduces litter and consumer waste, saves space in landfills, lowers dumping costs for certified housing and apartments and provides inexpensive items for folks to purchase in the fall.
Thanks to the community and the University of Illinois for making Dump & Run a success each year!
August 2022 Free Pick-Up Days:
Free pick-up days for furniture and bikes will be held on Saturdays, August 6 and 13, from 9am-4pm.
