Visit REUSE 

REUSE is centre for reuse and circular economy in Aarhus.

At REUSE you can hand in items and furniture for others to pick up for free.

REUSE is a different kind of recycling station where bits and bobs get a second chance instead of going to waste.

We are open, but with limitations

Due to COVID19, there are these limitations for your visit:

  • A maximum of 15 people on the site
  • Keep distance
  • Use hand sanitiser
  • A maximum of 1 person in each container
  • Spend a maximum of 15 minutes on the site

We look forward to seeing you!

Opening hours

The free stuff you find at REUSE come from you.

Hand in at REUSE
No matter where in the city of Aarhus you live, you can hand in useful bits and bobs at REUSE during opening hours. There is short-term parking at REUSE.

Hand in for REUSE at the recycling stations
You can find a special REUSE container at all six recycling stations in Aarhus. The items you put in the containers will go to REUSE and be placed on the shelves here.

Give what you got and take what you need.

REUSE is from you to you.

Bring or take as much as you can carry

Whether you drop off or pick up items at REUSE, you must be able to unload or transport it home by yourself.

The staff are not required to unload or carry items in and out of the site.

If you find something large at REUSE, you can borrow a cargo bike to carry it home.

Ask the staff how it works.

Borrow a cargo bike

At REUSE you find an area with lots of different activities and events about reuse and waste minimisation.

You can e.g. get assistance in repairing your bike, make flowerpots or funny costumes for carnival of recycled materials.

Take a look on all upcoming events on REUSE’s Facebook page.
