ReUSE is a materials exchange, which means we accept and appreciate donations. We are also happy to do pick-ups from departments as well.
Some items that we accept/offer include:
Items that we cannot accept:
- Hazardous waste (paint, paint thinners, batteries, motor oil). For a list of items classfied as hazardous waste and how to dispose of these materials, go to ehs.berkeley.edu/hazmat.html
- Electronic waste (computers, printers, fax machines). There are many Alameda county programs that will take these items listed on stopwaste.org
- Broken items
How to donate/pick up medium to small items:
Stop by one of our conveniently placed ReUSE stations and leave any items that you would like to donate, or pick up anything you would like. Most of these stations have donation/pick up lists, which we appreciate you filling out so we know what moves through the station between maintenance checks. Please try to keep things tidy and don’t take our organizational items.
How to donate large items or lots of items:
If you or your department have more than a box of material, ReUSE is happy to coordinate a pick up. Email us at UCBerkeleyReUSE@gmail.com and we will schedule an appropriate time.
