The East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse
The Depot’s primary activities involve collecting discarded materials by donation from businesses, manufacturers, and the general public, keeping the materials out of the landfill, and offering them for sale in the Depot Store. Our customers are typically, teachers, artists and households to which we sell supplies at low cost. Our staff offers hands-on education and advice to teachers and others on how to utilize reused materials in the classroom and at home. The Depot Store diverts over 200 tons of reusable material from the landfills each year. The Depot also provides ecological arts and crafts activities for public school students, recreation programs, and community events through our Special Events.
