2024 Dump & Run Location Map

The university’s end-of-the-semester Dump & Run ® event is expanding to multiple campus locations to make it easier for students and others at the U of I to donate unwanted personal items (no university property will be allowed) at the end of the semester and prevent useful belongings from reaching the landfill prematurely.

From Monday, May 6 to Sunday, May 12, eight 20’ x 8’mobile storage units will be placed near campus residence halls where students can put surplus or gently used items into bulk boxes inside the containers. Each day, the containers will be open for donations from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (see the container locations, schedule, and approved items list below). Throughout the week, the donations will be picked up by local participating charities Salt & Light, Habitat for Humanity of Champaign County, the Eastern Illinois Foodbank, and Goodwill.
