Campus ReStore

The Office of Campus Sustainability is working to reduce the amount of solid waste generated on campus while conserving natural resources through the practice of "re-use" at BGSU!  

Campus ReStore

A place, operated by Campus Sustainability that offers a wide variety of gently-used, donated items to BGSU students, faculty, & staff!

The Campus ReStore is located in the McDonald Hall Annex. Specifically, the eastern section of the McDonald residence hall. ReStore customers should enter through the sliding doors off of College Avenue.


Fall 2023 Event Dates:

Our "Fall Return" event on September 6th was a major success!
The next ReStore event will be held on Wednesday, October 4th, from 12pm-2pm!
There will be no cover charge for this event.

Follow Campus Sustainability on social media for most current updates!


Donate to the ReStore!

Does your office or campus organization have unused supplies/ items that others could find useful? Instead of sending them to the landfill, donate them to be reused through BGSU's ReStore Thrift Sale events!

ReStore Rules

  • Some items are free; however you may NOT take an "unlimited" amount of items. 
  • We reserve the right to limit quantities and availability of any and all items.
  • Take only a "reasonable" amount, and consider the rights of others. 
  • WE will determine what is considered a reasonable amount. 
  • If one of our staff members approaches you and determines you are taking an unreasonable amount, you will be asked to return items to the tables. 

2023 marked BGSU’s Office of Campus Sustainability’s 21st annual "When You Move Out, Don’t Throw It Out" (WYMO) program, a campus-wide reuse and waste-reduction initiative! WYMO collects still-usable, but unwanted, items from students as they're moving out from the residence halls to prevent these items from getting sent to a landfill.

These items are then offered to local nonprofits as well as given back to students at ReStore events throughout the year.
