Our mission is to ensure that students and classrooms in Maine have the basic tools for learning, by transferring surplus business supplies and merchandise into the hands of school children and teachers.


Each day, throughout the school year, children in Maine attend school without the needed pencils, paper, and other basic supplies. At the same time, businesses through out the United States dispose of these same basic items. 3R's transfers those unwanted supplies to children and their teachers. It is working. Since 1994, 3R's has given away more than $50 million worth of surplus furniture, paper, books, office supplies and computers to Maine schools and non-profits. Over 1 million pounds of reusable materials have been saved from Maine landfills and transferred to schools. 3R's was named 2003 EcoMaine recycler of the year.

Direct beneficiaries per year:

Over 70,000 students and over 8,000 teachers/staff can benefit from what 3R's has to offer.

Geographic areas served:

The State of Maine, parts of New Hampshire and Massachusetts
