Donation Guidelines The New Paltz Reuse Center on 3 Clearwater Road off Route 32 takes usable materials that are destined for landfills located over four and a half hours away, and redirects them to the ReUse Center, an onsite
warehouse, so they can be repurposed. The variety of rescued materials on hand opens the imaginative minds of our community. Teachers of all grades have given feedback that our supplies are perfect for engaging children in positive, mind-stimulating activities; help explain environmental impacts of reusing; and, artists have given feedback that our materials helped to add the finishing touch on a “masterpiece”. Cardboard materials such as tubes and cones, yarns, large pieces or bolts of fabrics, beads, unused ceramic tile, etc are amongst the items that we are accepting to restock our ReUse center. So consider clearing out old stock from your store or cleaning out your craft room to donate to the New Paltz ReUse Center. (845) 255-8456
Deconstruction is “reverse construction” of a structure to save materials such as lumber, doors, window and light fixtures for reuse. It is a green alternative to traditional demolition. This is a result of growing environmental awareness, increasing building materials costs, and evolving local sustainability and zero waste efforts. The purpose of a deconstruction initiative is to assist residents in identifying suitable building materials and safely dismantle them by hand to maximize reusable materials that can be harvested. By deconstructing rather than demolishing, 60% – 90% of construction materials are prevented from going to landfills.
Residual construction materials are brought in by local contractors which are for sale at our ReUse Center at discounted prices. Although availability changes, you will find lumber, plywood, molding, plumbing supplies, electrical supplies, doors, windows, vanities, and many other items to complete home projects.
Materials reclaimed from deconstruction projects are processed, sorted and input into our inventory system, then priced and placed on the sales floor for sale. Statistics are tracked and the results used to improve our approach on future projects.
