Beyond Recycling: Repurpose and Reuse: Home

This is a workshop designed to show students how to create usable items by recycling and reusing.




Recycle = to make something new from (something that has been used before)

Repurpose = to change (something) so that it can be used for a different purpose

Reuse = to use (something) again



We've all heard about the importance of recycling.  We place items such a cans, bottles, cardboard, and paper into a bin to be sent to the recycling center, and here the recyclables are reprocessed to make new items.

But, did you know that there are several recyclable items that YOU can creatively repurpose and reuse?

Come explore the different ways to create treasure from other people's trash!
