REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE!

Reduce!

Kids outgrow clothes before they wear them out. You have worn that sweater to three parties, time to get a new one. I’m downsizing and have extra furniture. I read that book about decluttering and now I have bags of unwanted stuff! What do you do with all this extra stuff?

Reuse!

Awesome donations come into DIBS! On Resale daily, we call them Blessings! Gently used clothing, household goods, and furniture. We sort, test, clean and put out the best for others to Reuse!

There are always people looking for something. Items are purchased to furnish that new apartment or fill that blank space on the wall. A piece of jewelry to complete any outfit. A unique item to complete a collection or to start a collection. Resale stores fill many needs.

Recycle!

Once something has been out on the floor for a while and hasn’t sold we have to move it on. DIBS! On Resale has a partnership with Muskegon Rescue Mission. They stop by once a week to pick up what doesn’t sell. They will bail clothing and take shoes to be recycled and pay us a little for that. They also take hard goods to try to sell in their stores.

We collect metal and paper to recycle. Dave and Ken from the First CRC in Grand Haven will stop by every couple weeks to pick up metal and paper for recycling.

Gail

They have a huge recycling program at their church and work hard at keeping metals out of our landfill. Gail manages our housewares department. Her church has a kitchen pantry for families in need. She will take kitchen items that don’t sell for use in that mission. Bob will take our plastics to top off his recycle bin at home. All this is done to keep recyclables out of the landfill.

Bob

We still generate some disposable waste but I am happy to say we only have our dumpster emptied only once a month. That’s not too bad.

Drop off your donations at the BIG Blue Doors on the south side of DIBS! On Resale. Your donation is helping to generate funds to make our schools better.

THE BIG YELLOW TRUCK

DIBS! On Resale has a Big Yellow Delivery Truck

and we like to see it on the road or on stage! Sonya and Stacey make pick-ups and deliver for us on Thursdays.  And this past week the Big Yellow Truck was used as a prop in the WMCHS Spring Musical “GODSPELL“.

We will Pick Up Furniture Donations

If you have large furniture items to donate and don’t have a way to bring them in, please give the store a call.  We will schedule a date to make that pick up.  If Thursdays won’t work for you, we will do our best to find volunteers to make the pick up on another day.

We will  also deliver your furniture purchase.  We do have a general fee of $40 for delivery and keep it within 15 miles.  Larger items or further distances will be pro-rated.

Stop in and see what we have in the store.  There is something new everyday!

Shoes For Every Occasion At DIBS! On Resale

Shoes!

From Brand New Shoes To Totally Worn Out Shoes We Take Them All.

A lot of shoes are donated to DIBS! On Resale and we have Jill to sort, clean and display them all.  Starting in the back room Jill finds the mates and inspects and cleans each pair.  Only the best are put out on display.  On our shelves you will find all sizes from kids shoes to adults.  We also have sports shoes in season.  Cross country spikes, Soccer shoes and ice skates to name a few.

And what happens to the shoes that don’t pass inspection?  They are banded in pairs and put into large mesh bags. These bags are picked up by our ministry partners to be recycled.  Nothing goes to waste at DIBS! On Resale.
