5 Best Ways to Recycle Beyond the Blue Box
Free Store 15104
The Free Store 15104 receives surplus and donated goods to redistribute to neighbors in need. The project was founded in 2012 by Gisele Fetterman to counteract excessive waste and consumption and to eradicate clothing insecurity. It’s entirely volunteer run and all of the items are always free and never resold.
“We want to keep as much out of a dumpster as possible, because good things don’t belong there,” says Fetterman. “Our hope is that those who come get what they need and then when they’re able, bring a donation themselves.”
Free Store 15104 is located at 420 Braddock Ave. in Braddock, and Free Store Wilkinsburg, located at 619 Penn Ave. in Wilkinsburg, cannot accept large furniture or electronics. They collect other new or gently used items and are always in need of donations of baby clothing, formula, diapers and household items.
