Business Pickup Service



Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse is a non-profit that inspires creativity, conservation, and community engagement through reuse.

To support our mission:

We operate a non-traditional art supply shop where people can donate used art and craft supplies, as well as shop for these unique items all in the same location.

We facilitate hands-on creative programming that educates the public about the benefits of reuse for the environment, community, and self.





Our subscription service is for quarterly, monthly, or bi-monthly pickups that help businesses easily donate clean, safe, reusable materials as well as new, finished products that are no longer needed. Businesses within 5 miles of Creative Reuse who have regularly occurring material donation needs are eligible.
