REUSE at Sheridan
The Office for Sustainability (OfS) is delighted to announce that the launch of the Mission Zero Freeuse Pop Up Shop in Fall 2022 was a success, all thanks to the Sheridan community for promoting a culture of reuse and waste reduction on campus! We hosted 14 Freeuse Pop Up Shop events, collecting nearly 3,000 lbs of donations and engaging 1,900+ shoppers in the thrill of thrifting.
More events to come in 2023! — Sheridan students, faculty, and staff will have the opportunity to donate items that are in good/working condition from the list of acceptable items below, which will be collected, sorted, and offered back to the Sheridan community for reuse (free of charge!) during periodic Mission Zero Freeuse Pop Up Shop events.
Have items you’d like to donate? Place items in labelled red bins located behind library desks at each campus (Davis, HMC, and Trafalgar). At Trafalgar, you can also pick up a labelled red bin from the mailroom (room A134) between 10:30 am-2:30 pm Monday-Thursday, take the bin to your workspace and place your donations inside, and then email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for pickup!
If you have items that cannot be accepted for reuse as part of the Mission Zero Freeuse Pop Up Shop initiative, please consider donating to other local charities.
UPCOMING FREE SHOPPING EVENTS (11AM-3PM) —
- MAR 29 – Davis Student Centre Atrium
- MAR 30 – HMC Creativity Commons
- APR 4 – Trafalgar Learning Commons
Let’s start a REUSE Revolution! Before you toss an item in the bin, stop and think if it can be used for another purpose or by someone else. The attitude of REUSE begins with a mindset that materials and products have usefulness beyond the owner’s original intention.
