The ReUse Center has announced their permanent closure, but this isn’t the end of Recycle Ann Arbor’s engagement with the reuse community.

It is with great sadness that the ReUse Center of Ann Arbor has announced their permanent closure this year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the center has decided to close their doors permanently and will try to help our community continue to reuse in a different way.

The decision to close was not taken lightly. Due to the nature of reused items, the ReUse Center found too many challenges in implementing sufficient health and safety protocols. In addition to this difficulty, the ReUse Center was unable to negotiate fair and sustainable rent terms with their landlord, making it no longer possible for the center to reopen.

However, the ReUse Center wants to remind the community that this is not the end of Recycle Ann Arbor’s commitment to help Ann Arbor continue to recycle items. This is merely a pause while they try to re-envision what future reuse efforts will involve. 

If you’re still struggling to find what to do with your lightly used items, feel free to check out the community’s reuse options with their A-Z Guide. Additionally, Recycle Ann Arbor continues to help provide recycle and waste services at the Drop Off Station on Ellsworth and the Recovery Yard on Jackson. 

Drop Off Station. 2950 E. Ellsworth Rd, Ann Arbor. 734-971-7400. recycleannarbor.org

Recovery Yard. 7891 Jackson Rd, Ann Arbor. 734-426-2280. recycleannarbor.org
