The Free Store is your one-stop shop that allows you to drop off stuff you don’t want anymore and pick-up things you do want for FREE. Essentially, this is a “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 include clothing, footwear, towels and blankets, office supplies, kitchen ware, electronics, lamps, textbooks and novels, etc.
