Dump and Run

Since 2008, we have collected 67,650 kilograms of items left behind by students, that’s approximately the weight of 150 polar bears!

The Dump and Run

The Dump and Run is an activity designed to ensure that students moving out of residences don't send their stuff to landfill. At the end of each semester, the Office of Campus Sustainability partners with Housing Services to set up donation tables in residences. The items are collected and sent off to charity or to the Free Store.

The next Dump and Run will take place at the end of this semester.
