The People's Depot is Ground Score's beverage redemption center operated for canners, by canners. The People's Depot generates formal, benefitted jobs for workers, serves hundreds of canners a week in the Central Eastside, and prevents the emission of hundreds of tonnes of CO2 equivalent (greenhouse gases) a year.

Ground Score's Reuse Team offers a Sewing Program and a Carpentry Program for low-barrier learning in the recovery, reuse and repair of textiles, furniture, scrap wood, and non-recyclable plastics. Materials come from GSA’s waste collection routes and community partners. This program is fundraising towards a fully-functioning eco-production studio.
