Reusing is the repeated use of a product, without changing its physical appearance. This simple gesture reduces the utilization of new resources and minimizes the amount of waste to be managed or buried.

Here are some things you can do to reuse your waste:

  • Donate or purchase used items that are still in good condition (furniture, clothing, etc.)
  • Favour the use of reusable containers and bags
  • Bring returnable bottles back to the retailer
  • Use rechargeable batteries
  • Print on both sides of the paper

Clothing, home accessories and furniture

Give your clothing, shoes, home accessories, furniture, appliances a second lease on life.  If they are still in good and working condition you can bring them to the following organizations:

  • Saint-Vincent-de-Paul, church basement – 3759 Queen St. | 450 755-7753
