The Reuse Centre accepts various items from Edmonton residents free of charge and makes them available to organizations and individuals for reuse. The Reuse Centre is unique as it deals with items that are not accepted for reuse elsewhere.
The Centre has three main goals:
- To promote the idea and benefits of reuse
- To provide affordable items to organizations and individuals
- To divert waste from landfill
The Reuse Centre accepts a variety of items such as arts and crafts supplies, office and school supplies, paper and plastic products and much more. Please note that all items must be clean and in good condition. Items are only accepted during hours of operation at the West door.
The Reuse Centre does not accept furniture, toys, clothing, electronics, appliances or construction materials. Many charities accept these items; please take them to the charity directly. For a listing of charities that accept these items visit the Reuse & Recycling Directory at www.edmonton.ca/reusedirectory or call 311.
Organizations and individuals can purchase items at the Reuse Centre for a nominal fee and may take as many items as they require.
Cash, Debit Card, Visa, MasterCard and American Express accepted.
