Swap rather than buy at ReProm Dress Exchange
More than 1,000 dresses are available at the Dearborn County Recycling Center.
(Aurora, Ind.) — The Dearborn County Recycling Center will host the ReProm Dress Exchange from February through April. Over 1,000 dresses are available. All are contemporary and are new (with tags) or like new.
Anyone wishing to shop at ReProm should go online or call to make an appointment. No walk-ins will be allowed. Appointments are available every Wednesday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Additional hours in March, including Saturdays and weekdays during Spring Break, will also be available by appointment only. A maximum of two people per appointment will be allowed to enter and shop. Appointments will last 45 minutes.
Participants are asked to bring a clean, ready-to-wear evening dress to exchange for a new or slightly used dress. Dresses must match current formal fashion trends to qualify for an exchange. Long evening dresses can be exchanged for any dress. Short dresses can only be exchanged for another short dress. Not all dresses may be accepted for exchange. Dresses with rips, tears, stains or broken zippers and clasps will not be accepted. Participants should be prepared to make a donation in case their dress is not accepted. Those who do not have dresses to exchange are asked to donate cash or check instead.
The formal clothing exchange is not a needs-based program. It is open to everyone and is based on the principle that buying something to wear once is extremely unnecessary. The program saves money and reduces waste by reusing items that would otherwise only be used once. ReProm is open to everyone and not exclusively for residents of Dearborn County. Appointments can be scheduled by going online at www.dearborncountyrecycles.com/reprom or by calling 812-926-9963.
The ReProm store is located at the Dearborn County Recycling Center. To schedule an appointment, visit www.dearborncountyrecycles.com/reprom or call 812-926-9963. The Dearborn County Recycling Center is located at 10700 Prospect Ln, Aurora, IN 47001.
