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
Accepted items list has been expanded to include many more household items.
