Working for a more sustainable Chicago since 1975.
This innovative program collects overruns, rejects, and by‑products that local businesses and industry treat as waste, and makes the materials available as educational and artistic resources.
Our store, the Creative Reuse Warehouse, resells these materials to teachers, artists, and anyone else who might see the value in things otherwise overlooked.
All materials are sold at an extremely low price -- you choose what you want to buy, and pay what you think is fair!
We hold a Creative Reuse Warehouse Open House Weekend several times a year at our main office at 222 135th Place, Chicago, IL 60827, in the Riverdale neighborhood.
Access to the warehouse outside these events may be available by appointment.
Sign up to hear from us about programs, initiatives, Creative Reuse Warehouse Weekends, City Farm news and more.
