Ottawa U dump & run

So last Thursday some members of SYC headed on down to Ottawa U to help them out with their dump and run program (If you don’t know what that is check out this link: It’s pretty sweet). We found lots of awesome stuff (Hello Michael Flatley CD) and got to keep anything that caught our interest.

On the environmental side of things, this program is great. Why should hidden treasures like a book called “Queen of the dust balls” go in the trash when they could go to a loving home? Last year after the spring semester, the university had an estimated 2.5 tonnes of stuff that students had left behind. Instead of all that going to the landfill, anything useable was salvaged out and donated to charity , or just given away to whoever wanted it.

So if you’re gonna be living in residence in the near future, don’t just chuck all the swag you got from Bluesfest! Donate it to the U of Ottawa,they’ll take care of it.
