WasteCap is participating in Re_Purposeful! As an initiative from the education non-profit, Non-Toxic Environments, Re_Purposeful focuses on collecting materials from interior design offices that were traditionally landfilled. These include: glass, tile, stone and carpet samples. Once collected, these items are distributed freely to teachers, non-profits, artists and crafters.
WasteCap will serve as a drop off point where designers can donate materials.
Thursday: 10 AM - 6 PM
Friday: 10 AM - 5 PM
Saturday: 10 AM - 4 PM
To drop off materials, stop into the WasteCap Salvage Warehouse and ask one of the staff members to unlock the POD during drop off hours. Designers will be asked for a few key pieces of information regarding the materials. All items should be donated in boxes that do not need to be returned.
Once the collection period has ended, Re_Purposeful will collect the POD and sort through the materials. The actual Re_Purposeful event where teachers, crafters and the general public can pick up the items for free will be held on August 25th and 26th in Waukesha, WI.
