This is a reminder of our first info session of the semester! It will be held tonight Wednesday, September 18 @ 7:00 pm in 110 Wheeler (the location is changed) Hope to see everyone there!
Join the team
During the info session, we will be going over what we do, and how to get more involved. We will be looking for volunteers as well as innovative leaders to apply for our newly founded human resources, marketing and strategic planning committees.
Bring something interesting that you do not need anymore that perhaps someone else could use! We will also bring some free supplies for everyone.
Don’t worry if you cannot make it; a ppt covering what we discussed and details about the application process will be posted below.
Application Deadline: Friday 9/20, 9:00 PM
Every semester, thousands of new readers are printed and bought by students. At the end of each semester, all these perfectly good readers become obsolete and are thrown away or recycled.
Then ReUSE came! Green-minded and hardworking ReUSErs have rescued thousands of readers from being wasted and given them away to students FOR FREE!
This semester we held the event @ Dwinelle Plaza on 9/3 and 9/5. Here are some highlights. Thanks to all who came and volunteered!

Move Out Clothing Collection
Thanks everyone for donating your clothing and readers to our Move-Out Collection effort! Together we can keep saving useful material from the landfill.
If you are around this summer and would like to help out sorting the clothing and readers (and get first dibs on both!), send us an email at UCBerkeleyReuse@gmail.com and we will let you know when our summer events are! We need a summer crew, and are looking for young (freshman and sophomore) leaders as well!
As the end of the semester races towards us like a wild stallion, don’t forget to donate your readers to ReUSE! We are taking readers at each of the dorms (if you can’t find your big blue reader bin, shoot us an email at UCBerkeleyreuse@gmail.com), and at Moffitt Library. The bin at Moffitt is before the ID checkpoint, next to the ATM machine. Remember that “reuse” comes before “recycling”, and it is better to reuse readers than toss them into the recycling bin (think of all the energy and resources that it took to manufacture a reader, and how much money they cost!). We will collect the bins on Friday 5/17, so please donate by then!
Reader Collection in Moffitt Library
School is about to start, but before you head to Copy Central and lay down $50 in readers stop by the ReUSE Reader Giveaway!
When: Monday 1/28 and Tuesday 1/29 10am-4pm

Thank you to all of those who came out to our clothing sale and especially to our wonderful volunteers who helped work it! We were able to divert 400 POUNDS of clothing from the landfill. We are very excited about this and are looking forward to our follow up sale in the spring.
Get excited to find a sweet Halloween costume, a new favorite pair of jeans and more at ReUSE’s Second Chance Clothing Sale on Lower Sproul this Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 11am to 4pm. All items are gently used and priced at $3 or less. We guarantee that you will have fun sifting through mountains of jackets, flannels, t-shirts and more!
Come check us out- unless it is raining. The Clothing Sale will be canceled for the day in the event of rain.
All clothing was collected last semester during spring move-out, and if not for our collection would have been sent to the landfill. By attending our sale, you are keeping perfectly good clothing out of the landfill! Reuse, not landfill!
Claire poses with a potential outfit
Come to our volunteer meeting tomorrow (Thurs 9/27) at 7:15pm in 210 Wheeler. Bring your own plate and fork (so that we don’t have to throw out disposables!)- we will provide dinner.
Whether you are a seasoned veteran or are curious and want to learn what ReUSE is all about- please stop by! We will be discussing our upcoming Second Chance Clothing Sale, our current Eshleman project, and other upcoming events.
See you there!
