Reuse & Recycle Services


Did You Know:

Last year alone, 55,300 tons of books and 33,000 tons of clothing were recycled through our program. 

 

 Reuse & Recycle Services:

  • On July 23, 2015 we opened OppShop, our upscale retail thrift shop located in Penn Plaza, at 3045 North 5th Street Highway in Muhlenberg Township. OppShop provides both short and long term benefits to our clients, the agency and our community. We offer warehouse and retail jobs to those in need of work and support people who are receiving assistance from the multiple services we provide, as revenue from the store is reinvested back into our agency. By donating items to OppShop you are diverting waste from landfills, which helps improve our local environment. Learn more about OppShop here.
  • Our online retail business on Amazon, eBay and Half.com provides recycled clothing, books and other household items to buyers from around the country, thus allowing the community and our agency to receive more support through continual growth.
  • On the second Saturday of each month, we host our monthly Rummage Sale from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Second Street Learning Center, located at 430 North 2nd Street in Reading. Simply bring your own bags and fill them with clothing, shoes and more for $1.00 per item. Please note: Only cash is accepted.
  • On the third Saturday of each month, we host our monthly Warehouse Sale from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at 140 Lemon Street in Reading, located at the corner of Lemon and Chestnut Streets. Simply bring your own bags and fill them with clothing, shoes and more for $1.00 per pound. Please note: Only cash is accepted.
