*Please note: There is a monthly orientation scheduled the first Monday of the month at 10 am at the Ithaca ReUse Center (214 Elmira Rd). Volunteers are welcome to attend this orientation without appointment. If you are not available at this date and time, please indicate below what days and times you are available for orientation. Our office hours are Monday-Friday, but we can accommodate a weekends-only schedule when needed. Please choose "weekends" only if you have no weekday options available.

Volunteers can help at Finger Lakes ReUse in primarily three areas:

  • ReUse Stores: up front in retail or out back processing donations
  • Deconstruction: on project sites in groups
  • Education: through workshops, print materials, or demonstrations

We have opportunities for individual volunteers as well as groups. Volunteering opportunities are available 7 days a week during our business hours.

Individual Volunteers:

All individual volunteers are required to attend an orientation, lasting 1 hour at our downtown location, 214 Elmira Rd (even for those interested in volunteering at our Triphammer ReUse Center.)

Group events:

Groups will have a condensed orientation during their first volunteer event and are not required to attend the orientations mentioned above.
