Changes from Previous Years:

Swap Area Eliminated
In spite of our best intentions and efforts to provide a worthwhile way to recycle used, but reusable household items in years past, most of the items placed in the Swap Area get thrown away at the end of Clean Up Day. This year please contact Salvation Army, ARC, Humane Society or similar organizations to donate your reusable items. We will no longer have a Swap Area!

Waiver required for all attendees!
