WHY should I participate?

The UDNI project redirects reusable items to the local community and helps to keep approximately 100 tons of materials (annually) out of local landfills.

HOW do I participate?

Simply bring your stuff and your UD ID (students) or proof that you are a landlord (lease agreement, city license, etc.) to the UDon’t Need It site. Others will be required to pay $10 per regular pick–up truck or carload of refuse.

If you need help unloading your stuff, there will be volunteers on site.

Please contact Deb McCredie, UDNI Co-Chair at (302) 831–8498 or mcdeb@udel.edu.
