An update on how ReStore will be operating given the COVID-19 situation: ReStore will continue to accept donations during the spring season, but will not have any hours where we are open to the public. So for students this means you can give things to ReStore, but not take. All donations will continue to be no-contact. Household goods can still be dropped off under the overhang on the south side of the kindergarten (Prestekrageveien 14). When you drop things off, please send us a picture along with the time/date of drop-off and we will move it inside after 72 hours. We recognize that many of you have large items that you cannot bring to our Moholt location. In light of this, we will be running van pickups by appointment. To protect our volunteers, these van pickups will also be no-contact. After booking a pick-up, you’ll need to get the furniture outside your building to the street, and clearly label it ‘for ReStore.’ Our volunteers will then collect the furniture at the appointed time. Appointments can be booked by sending a message here on Facebook. Our operations may change as regulations and guidelines get updated, so please keep an eye on our Facebook page for the most current information. Stay safe out there- we’re all in this together.

new life for used goods

ReStore makes it easier for students to give and get reused goods, keeping useful stuff out of the bin.
10.000 students from all over Norway and abroad move to Trondheim every year. To get set up in their new home, every student needs a few things like a desk lamp, bin, hangers, etc. These items are reusable and could pass on from one student generation to another. Unfortunately, containers full of household items in excellent condition are being thrown away each term. Most students, due to the seasonal gap between supply and demand, do not have a choice but to let their things go to waste.
ReStore is a student organization founded to solve this problem. We work together with Sit to reduce waste by making reuse easier for students. ReStore has set up a space in Moholt where outgoing students can donate useful items they no longer need. We store these items over the summer and offer them free of charge to all students at the beginning of the new semester.
