UpCycle Creative Reuse Center is an Alexandria, Virginia based non-profit that connects creativity and conservation by providing a resource center for reuse materials and a creative making space for the community. UpCycle is rethinking the traditional notion of waste by collecting cast-offs from our community to serve as creative materials.

UpCycle is dependent on individual, corporate, foundation and government grants to provide a materials resource center and arts educational outreach. The materials resource center in the Durant Arts Center, which is open to the public, collects, reuses and redistributes materials Wednesday through Saturday .
