Items we collect for ReUse and ReCycle
We are keen to reduce the number of things that end up in the landfill. To that end, we collect the following items and direct them to organizations that have found ways to recycle or reuse these items.
- Unwanted prescription glasses are taken to Ray Dahl’s Optical & Optometrists or Lifetime Eyecare.
- Clean prescription pill bottles with the labels removed are packaged by Compassionate Warehouse and reused in developing countries.
- Used disposable face masks and disposable cleaning gloves are collected and recycled through Focus Hair Design.
- Used felt pens, regular pens and printer cartridges are recycled by Monk Office Supplies.
Bring any of these items to the next Repair Café, and we will get them to the appropriate recycler.
