Annual Squamish ReUse It Fair

What is the ReUse It Fair?
An opportunity to bring your unwanted usable items or take away gently used treasures from someone else, for free. You don’t have to bring something to the ReUse It Fair to participate. You can simply come and take whatever treasures you find. 

The Squamish ReUse It Fair is organized by Squamish CAN in partnership with the District of Squamish.

What’s accepted?
– Small appliances in good working order or in need of minor repair.
– Large appliances in good working order.
– Gently used toys, books, clothing, baby supplies, DVDs, CDs.
– Furniture, household items, garden tools, sports equipment in reasonable condition.

 

What’s not accepted?
– TVs, computers, printers, VCRs (recycle these at the Bottle Depot).
– Broken, unsafe toys, damaged strollers, out-of-date children’s car seats.
– Mattresses (recycle these at the landfill).
– Items broken or damaged beyond repair.

 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Every year we need a lot of volunteers to be able to run the ReUse It Fair. If you can lend a hand (morning and afternoon shifts available), please contact our volunteer coordinator Laura at

Next ReUse It Fair: 2025

Thanks to the District of Squamish and all of our volunteers for a successful return in 2023. We will be back in 2025! 

Due to Brennan Park Recreation Centre facility upgrades currently underway, the annual Re-Use-It Fair originally planned for 2024, will not take place this year. The District of Squamish will host several events and initiatives to facilitate reuse and support community zero waste efforts.

A Community-wide Garage Sale will be held in June to provide an opportunity for residents to keep usable items out of the landfill, and take home some treasures. Start setting aside your gently used appliances, toys, books, clothing, sporting goods, furniture, and other household items, and stay tuned for details!

Bookmark the District’s events page to stay up to date with Zero Waste events and more, at squamish.ca/calendar

Stay posted, sign up for our monthly newsletter to hear about upcoming events!
