Reuse Days is a program to help divert quality, reusable items from the waste stream, including: clothing, textiles, furniture, appliances, cabinets, countertops and most other reusable renovation materials. At Reuse Days, partnering charities work with the Region to accept good-quality, reusable household items and building materials.


Only items deemed to be suitable for reuse by charities will be accepted. Garbage, household hazardous waste and electronics will not be accepted. Materials refused by charities must be removed by residents and may be disposed of at one of the Region’s waste management facilities (fees may apply).
