Aurora, In. — Over 1,000 dresses are available. All are contemporary and are either new (with tags) or like-new.It is suggested that participants bring a formal dress, in clean and good condition, to exchange for a new or once-worn dress. Those without dresses to exchange are welcomed to make a monetary donation instead.The formal dress exchange is not a need-based program, although the Dearborn County Recycling Center is a non-profit. It is open to everyone and is based on the principle that buying something to wear one time is extremely wasteful. The program saves money and reduces waste by reusing items that otherwise would only be used once.The program is not exclusively for Dearborn County residents. It is open to everyone.The ReProm shop is located at the Dearborn County Recycling Center and is open every Wednesday 3 to 6 p.m.This year the store will also be open March 23 through 30 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., except Sunday.
