Using and Reusing Stuff: REUSE

KEEP IT MOVING: squeeze the life out of it – make it into something else – rename or transform it (old towels can become washcloths or drying towels for muddy dog paws).

  • Use it efficiently
  • Repair and maintain it
  • Use less
  • Use it up
  • Salvage permits**

If YOU can’t use it, find a new home for it:

  • Give it away or donate it: curbside swap, free tables, thrift shops, women’s shelter, etc.
  • Trade/swap, barter or sell it: garage sale, radio, newspaper, consignment, on-line exchange; yukon trader and kijiji)
