Building the Culture of Reuse: Pittsburgh ReuseFest Centralizes Donation Process | Sue Kerr

2013-07-29-reuselogo.png

This four-hour event is a relatively simple concept — you pull up your vehicle with all of your stuff, volunteers unload and sort it among the nine organizations. You don’t even have to sort! And off you go after completing a very short form.

The first event in 2012 drew nearly 200 carloads and generated a lot of donations including:

30 bikes for Free Ride Pittsburgh plus assorted parts and tools

1,000 pounds of building material for Construction Junction

Over 400 reusable tote bags for the region’s food pantries

Over 100 pounds of reusable medical supplies + 50 devices for Global Links
