Reclaim! 2016 Fall Edition says
WHAT: A bonanza of materials for creative projects
HOW MUCH?: $5 minimum donation per person
WHEN: 11:00 AM- 6:00 PM on Wednesday, September 17, 2016

Expired design samples often get thrown into the landfill when they go out of style – but they have plenty of creative life left in them! At Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse, we collect and weigh thousands of pounds of samples from local designers and architects, and add in an assortment of other surplus materials like trophy parts, binders, and media. Then, we open the warehouse door, and invite the public to take as much as they want for a $5 minimum donation per person. This bi-annual event is great for artists, crafters, educators, and DIY aficionados, but everyone is welcome to participate. Our unique and quirky retail shop will also be open during the event, and we hope that creative people who haven’t yet visited will take the opportunity to explore it.

If you are an architect or designer interested in donating materials, please contact our Barbara Moore (barbara@pccr.org) to make an appointment, or to find out about sponsorship opportunities.

In less than 8 months, and with two events, Reclaim has diverted over 6,000 pounds of materials destined for the landfill. With the Fall 2016 edition, we would like to exceed 10,000 pounds. This biannual event is a program of Creative Reuse, carried out with the help of teams of volunteers.

This event coincides with Pittsburgh's Re:New Festival, a month-long celebration of creative reuse, transformation, and sustainbility.
