Support the YMCA Dump and Run (Ongoing)
The iCAP Working Group (iWG) met on May 31, 2016, to discuss and assess the SWATeam recommendation PWR007 Dump and Run. Following the iWG meeting, Ben McCall directly forwarded the recommendation to iSEE (Evan DeLucia) on June 10, 2016.
The University YMCA has coordinated a waste reduction program called "Dump and Run" since the early 2000's. 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.
