INSIDE THE FLX: Discussing proposed Geneva ReUse Center (podcast)

Geneva is set to discuss the creation of a ReUse Center aimed at reducing landfill waste during a public meeting on February 26 at the Geneva Community Center.

The initiative, a collaboration between the City and Town of Geneva, seeks to repurpose items like electronics, construction materials, and repairable goods, offering them at low costs while preventing unnecessary waste.

Jan Regan was recently in-studio discussing the concept of a ReUse Center, and how the community can get involved with this project.

The proposal underlines a growing demand for sustainable consumption and complements existing second-hand stores by filling in the gaps with goods that are still usable. Regan emphasized the environmental and economic benefits, including job training opportunities in various fields, thus supporting individuals struggling with long-term employment.

This initiative is part of a broader effort by Geneva’s local government to promote sustainability and waste reduction, including “Free Stuff Days” and “Fix-it Clinics” aimed at extending the life of usable items. The public meeting will also be accessible via Zoom, encouraging wide community participation in this eco-friendly project.
