Reusable Goods Program
Organizations throughout Durham Region will accept previously used items such as clothing, housewares or sporting goods and sell them to support their programs and charitable work.
If renovations are in your future, Habitat for Humanity Restores accept items from renovations such as windows, doors, paint, hardware, lumber, tools, lighting fixtures and even the kitchen sink.
Hold a garage sale
You can get rid of large quantities of reusable items. This can be a solo event or organized with the whole street or neighbourhood.
Place classified ads
They are reasonably priced and widely read.
Consider local consignment shops
If you have a valuable item that you are not using, this is a great way to allow others to make use of it and make some money.
Look at online forums
There are many opportunities to buy and sell items on the internet. There are also online organizations such as Freecycle or Craigslist that bring people together in your community who have items to give away.
