About the Hop Reuse Hub

The Hop Reuse Hub, previously known as the JHU Furniture Reuse Program, was designed by Homewood Recycling to increase the quantity and quality of reuse on the Homewood campus as well as to encourage and inspire the JHU community to resist the “throw-away culture.” In addition to furniture, we offer office supplies and refurbishment services to the JHU community. We also host Fix-it Fairs and provide donations and outreach to local Baltimore nonprofits. Download a copy of the Hop Reuse Hub's brochure. 

Who is the Reuse Hub’s Audience?

Funded by the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering, the Reuse Hub is primarily for the Greater Homewood campus and satellite campus locations of the two schools. All JHU divisions may purchase furniture/office supplies and participate in programs; however, receiving of furniture from other divisions will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Engaging Outreach

  • Fix-it Fairs

    • Held once during the fall and spring semesters, the Hop Reuse Hub’s Fix-it fairs are an opportunity for JHU community fix-it experts to share their skills with other members, and help repair all kinds of items. The goal of the Fix-it Fair is to inspire and encourage JHU community members to resist the "throw away culture" by learning how to fix everyday items for reuse. We encourage people to bring broken items or just questions. Repair categories include: clothing, jewelry, bikes, skateboards, technology, and furniture. To learn more about our Fix-it Fairs or to volunteer to be a fix-it expert please contact the Recycling Coordinator.

  • Move Out

    • We work with JHU Housing and JHU Sustainability to find ways to donate and reuse items that students no longer want at the end of the spring semester. To learn more about the Move Out program, please visit the Hopkins Eco-Smart Spring Cleaning with a Meaning website.
