Rummage in the Ramp begins Wednesday

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

An annual event that encourages people to recycle items by donating, rather than throw away, begins Wednesday.

In its 11th year, Rummage in the Ramp, starts at 4 p.m. Wednesday in the ground floor of the Chauncey Swan Parking Ramp, and lasts for nine days.

Items that are donated are sold at a cheaper price and proceeds get divided up among local nonprofit organizations. 

Everything from furniture to household items are sold. An event press release said sofas are hardly ever priced for more than $20.

Donations are still welcome throughout the event. There is a pick-up service provided for people who have no way to transport the items. More information can be found here about the sale.
