THE REDIRECTORY

WHERE YOUR USED GOODS FIND A NEW HOME

 

 

The idea of a ReDirectory was initiated to fulfill the “reuse” part of the GIRR mission. The ReDirectory’s mandate is to facilitate the re-use of our community’s household items, magazines and books. You can drop-off reusable items that are clean and in working condition, and offer a donation for any items you'd like to take home. It has become a social hub and a source of essentials for anyone on a budget setting up a household; a must visit for tourists and a treasure trove for everyone on Galiano.




Galiano Island Recycling Resources Society is funded by these organizations, plus your donations & membership fees
