A Resource Guide to donation opportunities for businesses, local governments, and residents.

The purpose of Reuse in New England is to promote reuse over traditional solid waste disposal of materials that still have "use." The Guide is intended to be used by businesses, institutions, and governments who deal with off-spec production or asset management, and others who are seeking or need to dispose of items that still may have "use." It contains listings for where to donate used goods or unwanted materials, and serves those in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. This guide lists not-for-profit entities unless stated otherwise.
