In 2015, the Swap Shop was launched at the Transfer Station in a small new building just downhill from the main recycling area (near the Red Cross bins).
Anyone with a recycling or trash sticker can use the Swap Shop: gently used items in good condition can be donated at the shop, and items can be picked up — all for free! The purposes of the Swap Shop is to keep more objects out of the trash, and to get perfectly usable items into the hands of those who can use them.
Do you love to visit the Swap Shop? Are you a people person? Will you have a few hours this year to volunteer doing something fun? We are looking for volunteers for the 2017 season.Working at the shop is fun, social, and satisfying! The more volunteers, the more often the shop can be open for business.
To get a volunteer application, please email either Corey York (Acton’s Town Engineer): engineering@Acton-MA.gov, or Debby Andell (Green Acton member and volunteer scheduling assistant to Corey York: DebbyAndell@gmail.com.
