University of Illinois seeks volunteers for 2023 Dump & Run program

Between the dates of Monday, May 8th and Saturday, May 13th, University of Illinois students living in on-campus residence halls will be moving out. Each year, the university sees thousands of students leaving and many have items they would like to part with.

As part of the university’s Illinois Climate Action Plan (iCAP) zero waste objectives, a spring move out program, Dump & Run, has been implemented to collect good materials and divert them away from otherwise being discarded in the trash. The collected materials will be donated to local non-profits in Champaign-Urbana to promote the reuse and repurpose of these items.

The University needs your assistance with executing this program! Volunteers will be stationed at central collection locations across the campus to direct students toward the collection boxes and ensure that the appropriate items are being collected (a comprehensive list will be provided).
