About

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.

You can sign up for flexible volunteer shifts to help out when the store is open on Weds-Sun between 10:00 am -5:00 pm. We also have work parties when we get new items on Mondays 10:00 am-2:00 pm or by special arrangement. 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. 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.
