Should I Donate This Item?

While the purpose of ReuseFest is to provide a second life to a wide variety of materials, it’s okay to place stained, broken, cracked or otherwise damaged items in a trash can rather than donating to charity. Before packing an item to bring to ReuseFest, look at the condition and ask yourself, “Would I buy this item in its current condition?” This criteria should help you to determine which materials to donate.
