Halifax Dump and Run

Halifax's Largest Community Garage Sale!

How You Can Help: Item Donations

The Halifax Dump and Run's success relies on donations of gently used items from residents of the HRM each year in order to be sold at the event. If you have any belongings that you no longer have a use for, help us get them to someone who could - after all, one man's trash is another man's treasure!
