ONEONTA – ARC Otsego celebrated the grand opening of their Otsego ReUse Center on Duane Street this morning with a ribbon cutting ceremony and tours of their location. Betty Li set up in the old Bresees’ warehouse, ReUse acts as a collection station for usable items that were destined for the landfill.

“We have lots of people drop off great stuff!” said Bill Hardy, manager of the location. “Local contractors, Carpet Plus, Scholet furniture, Lowes, G&I Homes, SUNY Oneonta, they have all donated things here which we sell at a fraction of their original cost!”

The ARC plans to purchase the building from Mark Bresee in the fall and are currently looking for support to help with the purchase.The Otsego ReUse Center is open 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Tuesday – Saturday.
