Choose to Reuse!
On the third Thursday of the month!
Thursday, February 15 in the Stata Center, TSMC Lobby

(Mirror Lobby at corner of Main and Vassar)

Drop-off begins:  8:00 AM
Pick-up: 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

How it works
Donate and pick up items.  Everything at Choose to Reuse is free! 
Five items per person until 12:20. Then, no limit from 12:20-1:00.  
If you’re not sure what condition an item should be in, consider this: if you wouldn’t buy it at a thrift store, then don’t bring it. Bring clean and usable clothes, books, and other household items. Don't bring opened or expired food items, aerosol cans, anything broken, missing parts or unclean

You don't have to give to get. And, you don't have to take back your item if no one chooses it. Everything that remains is donated or recycled by the Department of Facilities Recycling Program. We also have "Donation in Kind" forms for tax deductions.
