Saskatchewan Institute on Community Living (SICL)


The SACL is part of a national network that supports people with intellectual disabilities to build lives of involvement and meaning. We've been around for nearly 50 years and continue to create more accepting and welcoming attitudes and inclusive opportunities for people with disabilities. We do this work all over the province in many ways. That takes not only the work of many volunteers and families, it takes money. One of the most public ways we raise money is our recycling venture through our Institute on Community Living.

Over a decade ago, we formed the Institute and a partnership with Value Village Thrift Department Stores (Regina and Saskatoon). Our part of the deal is to collect donations of household items, furniture, linens, and particularly used clothing. We pick up free from people's homes and from our 50 yellow drop-boxes around the province, and deliver these donations to Value Village. We are paid for them. Since our partnership began, we've helped recycle tons of good quality used clothing and other items. To support the ongoing advocacy work of the Association as we build better communities and support people with intellectual disabilities and their families, all proceeds stay in Saskatchewan. If you'd like to donate or want more information on the SACL's recycling initiative, call the SICL Provincial Manager in Saskatoon (306) 477-2171 or call:
