Reuse - Another Good Way to Recycle
The Southeastern Indiana Recycling District (SEIRD) offers residents of serviced counties the “ultimate” recycling opportunity through their Reuse Centers. Centers are located in Franklin, Jennings, Ohio, Ripley, Scott and Switzerland Counties. A Building Materials Reuse Center is also available at the Switzerland/Ohio County Recycle Center in East Enterprise.
Clean, gently used merchandise in good condition can be dropped off during the center’s normal business hours. Clothing, shoes, books, office supplies, videos/CDs, knick-knacks, and non-upholstered furniture are just a few of the items that are accepted at SEIRD Reuse Centers.
The SEIRD Building Materials Reuse Center in East Enterprise can accept a variety of items including fixtures, windows, doors, sinks, nails, tools, building supplies, and more.
All county residents can “shop” in their county reuse center once a week during a 20-minute visit. Four items, five books, and unlimited amounts of clothing are available at no charge. Two units per week can be obtained from the Building Materials Reuse Center at no charge. Reuse Center merchandise is for personal use only, and should not be resold.
SEIRD Reuse Centers are the perfect way for residents to save money, natural resources, and energy by attaining new owners for merchandise that would otherwise have to be replaced on store shelves.
Reuse Center hours and locations are available through downloadable brochures on this website. Click on your county of residence for more information on your recycling and reuse center.
