Started in 2012 through the generous support of the Sprout Fund and other local sponsors, ReuseFest is a one-day drop off event open to the general public that diverts materials from local landfills to reuse by Pittsburgh non-profits.
PRC collaborates with a number of local nonprofits including Construction Junction, Global Links, Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse, Goodwill, Off the Floor Pittsburgh, the Animal Rescue League and more to provide the public with the opportunity to easily donate items that otherwise may have ended up in the trash. ReuseFest helped to connect these usable materials with great local non-profit organizations who found ways to give this material a second life, while benefiting those in need.
Drop Off is at the employee parking lot of UPMC Passavant, Cumberland Rd. near Peebles Rd., McCandless, Allegheny County
