A reuse (i.e. swap or free-to-take) is a facility where people drop off and pick up goods in the sense of free sharing and reuse. The facility is usually a small box or shelf. It might be dedicated to one kind of goods (e.g. books).

Usually those facilities are run at cafes, pubs, community centres, cinemas, clubhouses or other leisure activity places and the operator of those facilities is only the host (i.e. only checks whether the items are allowed).
