What is ReuseFest?
Started in 2012 through the generous support of the Sprout Fund and other local sponsors, ReuseFest is a one-day drop off event open to the general public that diverts materials from local landfills to reuse by Pittsburgh non-profits.
PRC collaborates with a number of local nonprofits including Construction Junction, Global Links, Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse, Goodwill, Off the Floor Pittsburgh, the Animal Rescue League and more to provide the public with the opportunity to easily donate items that otherwise may have ended up in the trash. ReuseFest helped to connect these usable materials with great local non-profit organizations who found ways to give this material a second life, while benefiting those in need.
This year’s ReuseFest on June 13th was a great success with over 200 participants donating over 11,000 pounds of materials for Reuse!
PRC would like to thank this year’s event sponsor UPMC and host site UPMC Passavant for your support!
