We are a nonprofit devoted to reducing waste and promoting creative reuse in our community. Creative reuse – reclaiming and reimagining – is at the heart of all we do.
Bottom Line for Portland
By making a gift to ReClaim It, you are supporting an ever-evolving movement where Portland's creative minds come together to breathe new life into what has been discarded. As the sole force reclaiming items from the Metro Central Transfer Station – a.k.a., the dump – we've saved over 800,000 pounds of reusable materials since 2014, and we collaborate with our partners to promote reuse and repair, reflecting the essence of Give!Guide's call for a more connected and compassionate community. Through our retail store, art and reuse events, and recycling education, we're shaping a future where waste becomes opportunity – and where every act of reimagining sparks a more vibrant Portland metro area.
“We’ve had a number of people say that ReClaim It has saved their lives. And I think it saved their lives because they found a real purpose that was both immediate—what they could do during the day—and which had an impact on the bigger world. They found a community, and it’s quite a remarkable group of people.”
– Jane Comerford, Board Member
