The Free Store is your one-stop shop to donate stuff you don’t want anymore and pick-up things you do want for FREE. Essentially, this is a “thrift store” where everything is free for members of the uOttawa community (students, staff, and alumni).
Our goal is to create a campus where waste is a thing of the past. By creating a space where anyone can drop off and pick up stuff, we hope to reduce consumption by offering free items to the campus. We want to make sure that items have a second chance to be used before they go to the landfill or off for recycling.
Some common items that you can find at the store are: used clothing, shoes, towels and blankets, office and school supplies, kitchenware, electronics, lamps, used textbooks and books, etc.
