University YMCA Offers Free Pick-up for Donations

Posted: Updated:

CHAMPAIGN-URBANA – The University YMCA announces it will be offering a free pick-up service for unwanted furniture and bikes for the YMCA’s Dump & Run Community Recycling Program.

Those interested must make an appointment with the YMCA for items to be picked up. Volunteers will then come get the donated furniture or bikes in Champaign, Urbana and Savoy areas between the hours of 9 AM and 4 PM on Saturday, August 8.

Residents who cannot donate at that time should take donations to the collection days from Wednesday, August 12 to Saturday, August 15. YMCA volunteers will be stationed at the U of I Stock Pavilion located at 1402 West Pennsylvania Avenue in Urbana from 8:30 AM – 12 PM and 4 – 6 PM Wednesday through Friday. Saturday collections will take place from 9 AM – 12 PM.

Sign-ups for the August 8 furniture and bike pick-ups can be found here. Donors can also schedule pick-ups by email at emily@universityymca.org or by phone at 217-337-1500.
