What a dump.

The Dump is a junkyard that first appears in the episode "Artist Unknown." This is where Mr. Krabs and Plankton opened their first and only burger store together, as revealed in "Friend or Foe."



It 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 that reads "dump" in green and all capital letters.

"Squidward, look. It's ol' Bold and Brash!"

The Dump is located down the hill from the hospital and down the street from the Adult Learning Center.
