“Perfectly Good” Program Launch at the 5th Annual Indoor Community Garage Sale

January 26, 2018 “Perfectly Good” Program Launch at the 5th Annual Indoor Community Garage Sale

Zero Waste Yukon is happy to announce the launch of “Perfectly Good”, a household goods reuse program designed to support local non-profits in accessing affordable used goods!

This program was created to fill the gap in options for organizations to access affordable used goods and to help keep perfectly good materials out of our landfill! By providing a shared storage space we will overcome the barrier many of these organizations have in helping their clients access household goods.

 

Local groups were surveyed to identify which items are most often needed.

We will be accepting specific donations for the program at our  5th Annual Garage Sale + Reuse Fair, 10 am – 2 pm on February 10th at the Canada Games Centre!

The following items will be accepted if they are clean and in working condition, and only if they were requested:

– men’s and women’s winter jackets, sweaters, pants, boots, hats and gloves

– cutlery, dishes, bakeware, pots, pans, toasters, kettles

– night stands, coffee tables, lamps

– queen and double bedsheets

– a limited number of queen and double mattresses, boxsprings, bedframes**

**please contact Zero Waste Yukon at 667-7269 ext 27 or projects@zerowasteyukon.ca to arrange drop off of larger items**

 

We appreciate your support in following donation guidelines to ensure goods are of high quality and in working condition.

For more information contact Zero Waste Yukon.

 

This project was created with support from the Community Development Fund.
