The Re-Use-It Swap Shop is a volunteer-run area at the RTS where residents can 'give and take' items that are in good working order. The Swap Shop encourages the reuse of items and helps to keep useful items out of the waste stream. All items are free, and you do not need to donate an item to take one.

All items must be approved by volunteers before being dropped off. Unaccepted items that cannot be recycled must be disposed of in yellow bags or taken to the Transfer Station. Please respect the decisions of the volunteers, whose efforts contribute to keeping the area organized and accessible.

Please drop off items as early in the day as possible to increase the chance that they will find a new home. Storage space at the Swap Shop is very limited, and at the end of the day items that do not fit or are deemed less likely to be taken in the next day or two must frequently be disposed of as trash.Swap Shop Shelves

Acceptable Items
