Donating Items for Reuse
The Region's reuse drop-off areas accept items in good working condition that can be reused.
Only certain items are acceptable for reuse. Check How to Sort Your Waste to find out if your item is acceptable for donation.
Donation Drop-off Areas
Donation drop–off areas are designated areas where residents can drop off items in good condition that can be reused. We've partnered with The Salvation Army Thrift Store and Caledon Community Services ReUstore to provide reuse services for the residents of Peel.
The Salvation Army Thrift Store and Donor Welcome Centres
The Salvation Army Thrift Store accepts and sells gently-used, reusable items in good condition.
The store is located at the Brampton Community Recycling Centre at 395 Chrysler Drive. You can drop off your gently-used items for donation, as well as browse and buy reusable items that others have donated.
Donations are accepted at Donor Welcome Centres at four Peel Community Recycling Centres (CRCs).
