Hate landfill?

Love the arts?

Got a couple of hours to spare?

Creative energy for a great cause?

How about a pick up truck? (really, we’re not kidding!)

Help us continue to keep reusable material in our local economy, not in the landfill!

Saving valuable materials from landfill, and putting them back into the community for creative reuse is hard work! Fun and rewarding too, but still a challenge, and we are always looking for volunteers to join us. Come help The Resource Exchange with things like:

  • sorting and preparing reusable material for resale
  • picking up/unloading donations
  • creating reclaimed goods that help fund our work
  • denailing and deconstruction
  • community events and workshops
  • office and administrative tasks

To become a volunteer, please contact us with your availability and contact information at info@theresourceexchange.org. Thanks for your support!

  • Volunteers often sort, clean, and process donations, helping us put more reusable materials into the hands of artists, educators, and builders, and out of landfill!
  • Interns and students from organizations like Steppingstone Scholars spend summers helping us in the store and learning about creative reuse
