Save the date, April 21st for our 10th Annual Give & Take!! Clean out your home of things you no longer use, GIVE AWAY and get NEW (used) things you CAN USE!
Everything is FREE!!!

This is a great way to reuse items that are too good to throw away but you just don’t have a use for them anymore – just bring along any reusable items (nothing larger than 1 person can carry) between 10am and 1pm, then take away anything you want from 1:30pm to 3pm – it’s free! (you don’t have to bring something to take something).
Example of what you can bring: household goods, pots/pans, toys, bric-a-brac, bikes, plants, kitchenware, garden tools, small furniture (must be in good shape to be accepted), gently used clothes, etc.
Examples of things that will not be accepted: electronics, TV’s, computer monitors, tires, Household Hazardous Waste (HHW), mattresses, broken items, etc.
You must provide your own vehicle for transporting items. There will be volunteers assisting and reviewing the items being dropped off. We thank you for bringing items to reuse, but sometimes things are in too bad a shape, or are too large, etc ~ please note, we reserve the right to not accept anything we feel will not get taken, or that we might have to pay to get rid of ~ we appreciate your understanding, thanks!!...no trash please!
