A Reuse Fair is a one-day community event where reusable household items are collected and passed on to charities, non-profits, artisans and schools that need them.
Every Reuse Fair collects a slightly different list of items based on the requests they receive. Examples of typical items include: milk jug lids, old bedding, onion bags, keys, spices, corks, broken jewelry, nylons and old calendars.
Reuse Fair Grant
Reuse Fair grants are given to individuals or community leagues in Edmonton that would like to host a reuse fair. Six grants of up to $500 are given out each year to help cover the expenses of holding a Reuse Fair.
Reuse Fairs that qualify for the grant take place in the Spring (May and June) and the Fall (September).
