It helps the environment

Every single item donated to the Garage ReUse Shop equals less useable material being thrown into landfill

Every cash donation over $5 is tax-deductible

While your donation helps provide warm, dry home for others, it provides a tax deduction in your pocket.

Every Moment Counts

We accept donations of gently used unwanted household items or leftover materials from home renovation projects. Whether your cleaning out your garage or garden shed we can put these items to good use by you donating them to us. Before tossing unwanted possessions in the trash or landfill, always consider the second R in the popular phrase Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

Reuse is about keeping resources circulating in our communities and out of the landfill. It means selling or giving away what we don’t want, and favouring gently used or refurbished items over new.
