Materials We Accept

Upcycle Dubuque wants your gently used materials shared with those that need
them. We take donations of all sorts of resources that can be combined to create 

valuable results. We take donations during regular business hours. 

Our Scrap Store: What it contains and how you can help?

 

Our scrap store is an important part of our store. It will house raw materials that would otherwise end up in our landfill. How will we obtain these materials? That is where you come in! Think of us as a trip to the recycle center. If you have items on our list of intake materials bring them to us. We will then repackage them and sell them at a greatly reduced price for crafters, artists, teacher or anyone else who is inspired to create. These materials will be given a new life and help to save valuable space in our landfill. Everything must be clean, rust free and in containers that you do not need returned to you. Please do not leave items at or outside our doors. Thank you for your help! Here is our list...it will evolve over time as we discover what our communities needs are.
