Dump and Run
What is the Dump and Run?
Twice a year, the Sustainable Development Office and Housing Service organize this event with a group of engaged volunteers to collect clothing, kitchenware, laundry detergent, unopened food, and books left behind by students. All of your articles will be redistributed in next year’s Free Store for international students, or they will be donated to specific not-for-profit organizations in need.
What is our goal / vision?
The Dump and Run program is part of the efforts to promote a culture of sustainability on campus while reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill.
What kind of Stuff are we talking about?
Stuff, things we no longer use, dust-collectors, knick-knacks, etc. It doesn’t matter what you call them, we all have things we do not use but that could be used by someone else. Some common items are clothing, office supplies, kitchen ware, electronics, textbooks, etc.
We DO NOT accept large pieces of furniture (sofas, beds, wall units, etc), large appliances (stoves, washer & dryers, etc.), or hazardous materials.
