Are you looking to drop off an item immediately, donate to a charity or to some one in need, or shop for used items? Here are additional reuse resources available in the Twin Cities.

By giving away unwanted items or shopping for used goods, items not only stay out of the landfill or incinerator (where toxic materials are burned or leached into our air and water), but these items are kept in use for their maximum life, which reduces the need to manufacture new products.
