Re-Use Depot

The Re-Use Depot is in a new location, next to the Mary Morse laundry room. See the Campus Sustainability Map.

The Re-Use Depot is a student-run space that demonstrates that we have an abundance of resources in our community, if we set up systems to share instead of waste. If a Mills community member no longer has a use for a gently-used item such as clothes, shoes, school supplies, books, accessories or kitchenware, that person can drop them off at the Re-Use Depot. Others can stop by and “shop” for free!

Items that are not accepted include: undergarments, broken electronics, broken appliances, batteries, and anything that is torn, ripped, or stained.

The space is run by a student Re-Use Depot Manager, with students volunteering one to two hours a week to open the space, process donations, and help shoppers. Together the volunteer hours create a consistent schedule for community members to utilize this resource.
