Venue:

Rummage in the Ramp is an annual City-sponsored effort that began in 2007 in order to keep tons of reusable items out of the landfill and get it to those who need it when the lease changeover occurs annually at the end of July. Environmental and human services non-profit groups provide the labor and split the profits. Donations are tax-deductible and most items are priced at $1, $5, $10 and $20. 

Through eleven years of Rummage in the Ramp, residents have diverted over 245 tons of furniture, housewares, clothes, books and so much more from the landfill.  Almost 6,000 people have donated items, around 22,000 have shopped, and 1,900 volunteers from dozens of local non-profit groups have split the $147,100 in proceeds from the event. 

Cost: FREE
