2019 BYS Volunteers

2019 Big Yard Sale (BYS) Volunteer Registration

Scroll down below to volunteer for the Sales Week.  Use this link to signup for Early Collecting and Presorting, the two weeks preceding the Sale week 

The Big Yard Sale recycles items discarded during the University of Richmond (UofR) student move-out via a community sale.  This year's Big Yard Sale will be held in the Robins Stadium concourse on the Friday and Saturday following graduation.  Robins Stadium is next to Milhiser gym.  

Net revenue from the sale promotes Falls of the James Group, Sierra Club programs (FOJG) and the UofR student sustainability programming.  Unsold goods are donated to Goodwill of Central Virginia.  The sale is an excellent example of the REUSE recycling principal, enhancing efficient use of our natural resources.  

Use this form to signup for the Collection and Sorting (Monday-Thursday), as we gather student donations and display them in Robins Stadium, and the Sales days (Friday evening and Saturday morning). Lunch is provided on Monday.In particular, please consider volunteering on Monday, May 13th, the Big Collection Day 

You will find this a fun and rewarding experience so sign up today!

Here is a map of the University of Richmond.  Robins Stadium is next to Milhiser gym (#16).  You can park at the Old Fraternity Row (#22) or at the Stadium parking lot. Here are some photos from the 2017 event (thanks to Deborah Hawkins). 

Please contact Gill Sigmon if you have any questions
