Doing some spring-cleaning or going back home for the summer? Instead of throwing out old items, donate them. The University YMCA will be hosting Dump & Run: A Community Recycling Program. Now in it’s 14th year, the event brings the CU community together for a common purpose: to reduce litter and consumer waste. All the items donated will be sold inexpensively in the fall and will act as a major fundraiser for the University YMCA.
The event also saves space in landfills and helps decrease the dumping costs for certified housing and apartments. The items that can be donated vary from anything that is reusable and is in good quality. Some of the items that can be donated are furniture, dishes, glassware, artwork, clothing and more.
Participants can bring their items on May 11 through May 16 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. and May 18 to 22 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Once the spring sale is over, there is an hour and the remaining items that were not sold or donated to other non-profit organizations are free to the public.
Join the YMCA as they try to bring environmental awareness to keep items away form dumpsters and encourage others to join and make a difference.
