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!


Support Girl Scout Troop 161

As you are cleaning out your garage/basement, please consider donating your
gently used camping equipment to the newly formed Girl Scout Troop 161.

They are in need of all gear: tents, sleeping bags, pads, stoves, cookware, packs … There will be a separate area at Clean Up Day for you to drop off any donations.
