Reuse & Salvage

Many people routinely reuse items, through yard sales, hand-me-downs, and classified sections. This list will help you get started to find out about other ways to find new homes for materials.

1. Visit your local solid waste districts’ web sites for reuse opportunities in your area or give them a call. For example some districts have “Swap Shops” for used items; others hold annual swaps for materials such as clothing.

2. Check the Yellow Pages for listings of Reuse Businesses in Vermont:
Look under the headings of:

 

Antiques
Appliance – household-used
Books – used and rare
Building Materials - used
Clothing – second hand
Furniture – used
Office furniture and equipment renting, and leasing or repairing and refinishing
Shoe -repairing
Sporting goods –retail
Surplus and salvage merchandise
