There are 10 Centres for Reuse in Slovenia, all of them located just next to the local waste collection sites.

In case you'd like to get rid of things that might be of use to others, but then again might not be accepted by charities or vintage stores, a Centre for Reuse is the place to go. They might take them and resell them for a token price, or they won't and you still don’t need to take them home as the waste collection site is just next door.

Since the main goal of such stores is in trash reduction, they often come together with a Repair Café and package-free shop (brezembalažna trgovina) which is basically a big vending machine, where you can fill your second hand bottles or other containers with whatever you need (if they have it).
