Operated by the EDRS since 1997, the Take It or Leave It is the reuse centre for Edson and area. Each month, in a building powered by solar panels, 120 metric tonnes of unwanted items find new users- citizens, schools, or non-profit groups such as the Yellowhead Emergency Shelter for Women. In 2017, the Take It or Leave It added a storage container dedicated to seasonal items such as holiday decorations.`
