Dump & Run May Collection Drive

Description

The University YMCA's Dump and Run program keeps six semi-trailers worth of unwanted 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, provides inexpensive items for folks to purchase in the fall at the Big Garage Sale.

We need volunteers to help with collections (driving, picking up items, etc.) May 2-14 and help sorting these items at the University YMCA YMCA from May 15-31.

When you volunteer, you get first dibs on the things collected (after only 6 hours of volunteering) - and we get an unbelievable amount of great things donated! So come out and volunteer for this great cause! PLEASE USE THE URL BELOW TO SIGN UP! Thanks!

Final Date: 

Thursday, May 31, 2018 - 6:00pm
