What a dump.
— Patrick Star

The Dump is a location that first appears in the episode "Artist Unknown." There is a lot of trash in it and it is surrounded by high fencing. The Janitor is one of the known employees. This is where Eugene H. Krabs and Sheldon J. Plankton opened their first and only burger store together, as revealed in "Friend or Foe."



The Dump looks like any dump. It has mountains of trash and is guarded by a Guard Worm named JK. It is covered with garbage waste and there are also tall metal gates surrounding the area and a sign saying "dump" in green and all capital letters. The Dump is located down the hill from the hospital and down the street from the Adult Learning Center.
