Donation drop off areas are designated areas where residents can drop off items in good condition that can be reused. Reuse drop-off areas are located at some Peel Community Recycling Centres (CRCs).
There is also a ReUstore at the Bolton CRC. The reuse store at the Bolton CRC is operated by Caledon Community Services. This store accepts and sells reusable items in good condition. It sells these items at moderate prices, and then reinvests the profits back into the community.
