The University YMCA will hold its annual Dump and Run sale Saturday, Aug. 26, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the University of Illinois Stock Pavilion, 1402 W. Pennsylvania Ave., Urbana. Admission is $3. A follow-up sale will occur Sunday, Aug. 27, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the pavilion, with a “free” sale from 2:30 to 3 p.m.
Dump and Run is a community recycling program that reduces litter and consumer waste, saves space in landfills, lowers dumping costs for certified housing and apartments, and provides inexpensive items for people to purchase.
Donations and volunteer time from members of the community and the U. of I. campus help divert approximately 27 tons of reusable items from landfills each year.
Items available include furniture, dishes, glassware, pots and pans, small household appliances, computers, electronics, bicycles, office and school supplies, nearly new clothing, books, toiletries, lawn and garden items, artwork, vinyl records and CDs, musical instruments, sporting equipment and other household goods.
