Beyond the Blue Box is one of Canada’s longest-standing successful community-based, waste-reduction reuse centers. A not for profit that operates two bustling stores on Covert Street in Cobourg. The dedicated volunteer team collects, sorts and resells the donated items. The prices for items is just enough to cover their operating costs. They are also proud of the employment opportunities for individuals with developmental challenges. Beyond the Blue Box has helped over 3,000 families working with Cornerstone, The Help Centre, Salvation Army, Transition House and other community agencies. This year they are so proud to celebrate 25 years of helping their Community.
