Dump and Run uOttawa
Dump and Run

Since 2008, we have collected 49,650 kilograms of items left behind by students, that’s approximately the weight of 4 school buses!

Every semester our volunteers collect the clothing, kitchenware, laundry detergent, unopened food, books and numerous other things left behind by students when they leave residences. These items are cleaned and distributed to charities and the Free Store.

Our goal is to create a culture of reuse on campus while helping communities in need.
