Jefferson Avenue Corridor Community Cleanup and Flower Planting

Good Morning,
Friends of Buffalo ReUse!

Michael Gainer here, Director of Buffalo ReUse:

Since starting Buffalo Reuse in 2006, I’ve called the East Side my home. I’m proud of the work we started here, innovating the reuse industry through advanced deconstruction techniques, starting a reused material store (, supporting the work of startups and entrepreneurs (, and working in the neighborhood to create beauty and greening through cleanups, tree plantings, gardens and more.

Having now returned to the leadership team of Buffalo ReUse, our Board’s eager to refocus our energies on the East Side of Buffalo. We invite you to come out and support our efforts at our next volunteer event. See the details below.

We have a lot of new projects in the works so stay tuned.We hope to see you on Saturday!
