Dump and Run Expands To Eight Campus Locations
Apr 28, 2023 | 1:07 pm
Dump and Run promotes donation to local charities and extending the lifecycle of unwanted items.
The university’s end-of-the-semester Dump and Run event is expanding to multiple campus locations to make it easier for students and others at the U of I to donate unwanted personal items (no university property will be allowed) at the end of the semester and prevent useful belongings from reaching the landfill prematurely.
From Monday, May 8 to Saturday, May 13, eight 20’ x 8’mobile storage units will be placed near campus residence halls where students can put surplus or gently used items into bulk boxes inside the containers. Each day, the containers will be opened at specific times to accept donations (see the container locations, schedule, and approved items list below). University volunteers will be available at the sites to assist. Throughout the week, the donations will be picked up by local participating charities Salt & Light and Goodwill.
