What is a Creative Reuse Center?
It’s an organization that specializes in collecting and distributing unwanted industrial and residential materials for the purposes of either turning reusable materials into creative projects, or providing needed supplies to arts organizations and public schools. Reuse centers are a valuable resource to artists, educators, families and businesses. There are dozens of creative reuse centers around the country. Turnip Green Creative Reuse is Tennessee’s first creative reuse organization.
