[Illinois] Dump and Run

Dump and Run keeps over 30 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.


All collections will be held at the UI Stock Pavilion, located at 1402 W. Pennsylvania Ave, Urbana IL, beginning on Monday, August 1.

Monday Aug. 1: noon – 4:00pm

Please select only ONE day for your preferred collection time. We will do our best to accommodate your preference, however based on the number of responses your collection window may fall outside your selection.
