ReClaim It! is a unique non-profit resale store that gleans nearly everything we sell from the Metro Transfer Station. We are reducing the waste stream, while sourcing a one of a kind volunteer run store with many unique items. We sell to local artists, neighbors and the general public to inspire reuse, repair, and reimagination. Reclaim it! is located at 1 N. Killingsworth (at Williams, not too far from PCC- Cascade campus).
Our team of wonderful people give of their time cleaning and fixing items, setting up in-shop displays, creating DIY demo items, and being a friendly face helping customers at our re-sale store.
All staff, volunteers & customers must wear a mask inside our building & follow Covid 19 protocols.
You can sign up for flexible volunteer shifts to help out when the store is open on Weds-Sun between 1:00-5:00 pm. We also have morning time slots most days 10:00 am-1:00 pm for increased social distancing doing cleaning, organizing and working on projects. Other volunteer opportunities include going to the Metro Waste Transfer Station in NW Pdx to glean treasures, and helping load up our found treasures on Sundays at 1:00.
The first step to get started is to schedule an in-person tour and orientation. We send you some materials to review in advance to make best use of in person time. Folks usually come in for at least an hour to get oriented and to try out working with us. See ww.reclaimitpdx.org for more details.
