Description

Facilities & Services collaborates with the University YMCA and University Housing to coordinate the annual Dump and Run collection program from University Housing facilities.

At student move-out, hundreds of volunteers help collect the reusable materials for resale after summer break. Then the weekend before school starts, the YMCA's staff and volunteers sell the materials at a massive "garage sale" in the Stock Pavillion.  The University YMCA is a local non-profit, and they work with the International Student and Scholar Services department on campus, as well as University Housing.
