Reuse Store

Every week residents bring materials to our Household Hazardous Waste Facility for disposal or recycling. Products that are still usable are saved from disposal for another chance to be used.

A wide selection of paints, cleaners, and other household products can be found at the Reuse Store and are available to the public for FREE! By safely reusing these items, residents can save on purchases while helping the environment. *Due to COVID-19 we are currently allowing only one person at a time inside our Reuse Store
