Reuse | The Heart of Waste Prevention

Bricks Cans Shoes

Reusing materials saves money, energy and natural resources and creates markets for materials, new jobs, and opportunities for vocational training. Reuse is the first option in diverting unwanted materials from landfills; why throw away a good thing if someone else could use it!

Reuse opportunities include:

  • Donating household items like clothes, footware and furniture to local agencies like Goodwill, Deseret Industries, Amvets, Cerebral Palsy, etc.
  • Giving unperishable food to local food banks and charitable organizations
  • Donating usable building materials. This offers a way to get rid of materials affordably and avoids costly landfill disposal fees.

Here are a few places where you can donate reusable items in our region:
