Re-Use Depot

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, mini-fridges, and anything that is torn, ripped, or stained. If you have a working printer, mini-fridge or electronics, try letting others know that you would like to give it away and most likely you will have a taker before you know it.

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. Check back to this page during the third week of the semester and we should have an updated schedule for those who would like to visit. Also, check out reusedepot.tumblr.com for updates or to ask questions of the Re-Use Depot team.
