Acadia Dump and Run

The Acadia Dump and Run is a massive campus-community garage sale held in the Acadia gym at the end of the academic year, usually in early May. The event is a partnership between Acadia University, the Acadia Students' Union, Valley Waste Resource Management and the Town of Wolfville. The Dump and Run accepts donations of unwanted items such as furniture, toys, clothes, sports equipment, tools, kitchenware, shoes, electronics and more! Literally tons of waste is diverted from landill each year and proceeds benefit a number of local volunteer associations.
