Due to construction projects happening at the Waste Transfer Site, the Re-Use It Centre will be temporarily closed to the public starting Monday, May 11 for a couple of weeks.
Re-use is still a great way to save money and reduce waste. The Resource Recovery team is working hard to build a new centre. The concept will be the same, with some modest improvements to the building and a new spot in the yard.
In the meantime, please hang on to your gently used household items to drop-off for re-use once the new building is open.
Garage sales are not recommended due to risk of COVID contact and lack of controls for physical distancing. Facebook buy and sell groups and Kijiji are recommended. There is also a Facebook group called ‘Pass It On’ where you can post items to be re-used for free in Banff.
Please note that due to COVID-19, the team at the Waste Transfer Site has introduced increased safety protocols throughout the yard to ensure that we can continue recycling and re-using safely during this time.
The Re-Use It Centre is located at the Waste Transfer Site, 160 Hawk Avenue and is open seven days a week (except public holidays) from 7:30 a.m. - 3:15 p.m.
The Re-Use It Centre accepts items like:
Dishes & other kitchen items
The Re-Use It Centre does not accept items like:
Large appliances (i.e. refrigerators)
Infant gear (car seats, cribs, high chairs)
If you have a large item that you would like to be re-used and require pickup for, please use the Town of Banff’s Unwanted Item Pickup service online. Please do not leave anything beside the bins in your community.
