Re-creation Station

The aim of the Re-Creation Station is to promote the 2nd ‘R’, reuse. The Re-Creation Station promotes reuse in a fun, creative and practical manner.

As part of a field trip and some in-class presentations, students spend approximately 30 minutes making a craft with Re-Creation Station materials. The Re-Creation Station is also a popular venue at special community events. It is set up at these events on the invitation of event coordinators.

The materials in the Re-Creation Station are donated to the program by businesses, residents and the community. Below is a list of materials accepted for reuse at the Re-Creation Station. Donations to the program need to be clean. Please contact us before dropping donations off at either location.
