Reuse Days is a program to help divert quality, reusable items from landfill such as bedding, furniture, appliances, cabinets, countertops and most other reusable renovation materials. At ReuseDays, partnering charities are working together with the Region to take all good-quality, reusable household items and building materials.


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