What is Dump & Run? Dump and Run keeps over 20 tons of used, quality goods out of Champaign-Urbana’s dumpsters and landfills each year. This project reduces litter and consumer waste, saves space in landfills, lowers dumping costs for certified housing and apartments and provides inexpensive items for folks to purchase in the fall.

Want to shop early? Volunteer 6+ hours for first dibs during the August pre-sale! Sign up today to volunteer or learn more by visiting our Dump & Run: Volunteer page.

NO CRT TVs OR MONITORS ACCEPTED. The University YMCA and Stock Pavilion are monitored for illegal dumping. While we would love to save every item, we simply cannot responsibly dispose of bulky TVs and monitors. For more information on electronics recycling, please visit: www.champaignil.gov/recycling
