After nearly 25 years in business, the Reuse Centre is closing its doors for good. As the final day approaches, the Reuse Centre urges the public to visit their one-stop shop and take away whatever they can carry – free!

For the past eight weeks, the community has done their part by taking home a significant amount of inventory.

Now, the Reuse Centre invites anyone and everyone from the surrounding area to help clear out the final stock.

If you’re a bargain hunter, do-it-yourself home renovator, shabby chic enthusiast, crafting connoisseur, repurposed furniture maker, fashion designer, or collector of unique antiquities, do not miss your chance to score FREE supplies for your projects and collections before the Reuse Centre closes on Friday, September 30, 2016.

Business owners and developers are also urged to take advantage of the remaining fixtures, which include a cash register and store shelving.

The Reuse Centre and its many dedicated volunteers would also like to take this opportunity to thank the community for their continued support and enthusiasm for waste reduction.

The Reuse Centre is open Wednesday through Friday, from noon until 4pm, Saturdays 10am until 5pm and Sundays noon to 4pm.

    Too bad! After the sign near the road was not permitted, I found it hard
    to find the entrance. Perhaps others did too. It was a useful place, with
    good employees and volunteers.

    The late George POcock and others were the driving force behind the original ReUse Centre. Getting the local municiplality and region on board took considerable convincing. It is a testament of faith that the ReUSe Centre in Burlington spawned numerous other similar organizations in many locations in Ontario.

    Time changes all, so for for various reasons the ReUse Centre has fulfilled its purpose and the time to move on is here.
