Calling all enthusiastic supporters of our great city!

Are you plagued with clutter in your basement, your attic, your garage? Are you eager to plant your summer garden, but find unwanted wood, bricks, old tools in your way? Call us! We accept donations of nearly anything except clothes (its complicated…involves expensive fire permits and too many piles of clothes when other entities already have that area of material reuse covered.)  Call us and we will come to you to pick up your unwanted furniture, building materials, appliances and more! Or stop by 1199 E Main Street on your way to the Public Market and drop it off to us.  Either way, we will smile, shake your hand, and give you a tax receipt for next year’s filing.  Remember, we are taking materials not only for reuse, but creative repurposing as well.  As they say, ‘one man’s trash is another’s treasure.’

Well Greenovation fans, we are really making progress in the building formerly known as Vietnam Vets.  Material donations and vendors are moving in, paint is going up, reuse paper floors are going down, and our beloved volunteers are creating some exciting stuff!

In addition to our physical construction, we are building relationships too! In pursuit of our mission to strengthen our community through recycling and repurposing materials, we are building a Community Wish List.  We are asking local outreach programs to let us know what materials, appliances, furnishings, things…they need to serve the underserved.  Do it, friends! If you, or someone you know works with a local outreach program, let us know what they need. Do you know of a low-income homeowner who is struggling to afford the tools or materials they need to maintain their home?  How can we best serve Rochester?

Contact us at 585-288-7564 or by email at [email protected] if you would like to participate in one of our fun, fun, fun volunteer events, or for more information on our Community Wish List.

This Thursday we take a bold step forward by opening our new reuse center at 1199 E. Main St! If anyone is familiar with the old Vietnam Vets thrift store, you’ll know we have a lot of space to fill. We will need your help! If you have stuff to donate, want to lead a workshop, or think you have something else to contribute, stop in and talk to us! We’re opening Rochester’s first “Green Market” and are interested in talking to small businesses who might like to join a cooperative retail/work space. Stop in after March 1st and talk to us, or leave a comment and we’ll get back to you.
