Share, reuse, repair hub opens for York Region

The Circular Innovation Council has launched a Share, Reuse, Repair Hub in Ontario’s York Region.

Funded by The Regional Municipality of York’s Circular Economy Initiatives Fund, the online hub provides tools and resources to empower individuals, businesses, and organizations in York Region to take part in the circular economy.

It allows people to find ways to share, reuse, and repair with a directory of shops, organizations, and events marked on a live map, such as swap events, second-hand stores, or donation drop-off centres.

Extending the useful life of products is a simple but essential aspect of a circular economy. Sharing, reusing and repairing keeps items out of landfills, reduces carbon emissions and supports local businesses in York Region and beyond.

The Hub encourages circular economies by providing resources for sharing, reusing and repairing everyday items such as textiles, electronics, household appliances, recreational equipment, and furniture.
