We have compost bins!   A sure sign of spring….the compost bins have arrived.   They can be purchased for only $25.   Just pay at check in and we’ll get one for you.

We need you! Due to the massive increase in items being dropped off for reuse, we are busier than ever and desperately need volunteers. Please fill out the Volunteer Sign Up form under our Contact Us link even if you only have a few hours a month to spare.   If you belong to a social group, contact us about volunteering together!
