Reuse Options

To reuse is to use an item more than once in its original form. Giving a second life to used goods diverts waste from County landfills, supports local charities and their recipients, and saves resources and energy needed to make new consumer goods. Together we can make a difference!

There are many opportunities for consumers to reduce waste by using goods as long as they have utility or value. In addition to repairing what is broken, giving to friends, family or community charities, holding a garage sale or selling through classified ads, the County suggests:  

Reuse Centres

Three of the County's waste facilities have Reuse Centres. Residents pay to dispose of the item, but can take anything from a Reuse Centre at no charge. A bulletin board is located in each Reuse Centre for bulky items (those that take more than one person to move).
