Share your unwanted items year round!

Re-use has been an everyday practice for many cultures long before recycling programs started. Items such as clothing, toys and even furniture can become unwanted before they wear out and we replace them with new items.

Some charities rely on donations of good reusable items. Donating gently used items is a great way to support local organisations and help the environment at the same time! Many day care centres or community groups would be happy to receive those craft supplies that have been cluttering up your closet. Just be sure to call ahead to confirm what they are able to accept.

Only good used items are valuable to others and it is easy to donate them for re-use, so please respect the value of charity and do not dump materials next to bins that are full. When using a charitable group's drop off bin, please note they only want materials that can be re-used, they do not want your garbage.
