The Trading Shed
Aside from the obvious reasons to visit this facility, there is the "thrill of the hunt" in the swap shed where usable items, "too good" to toss out are set aside for others to take. The goal is to provide useful items to the community (recycle) as much as is reasonable within the limited space provided.
No trash please.
No items that are hazardous waste or items in disrepair.
Do not block traffic while visiting the swap shed. Please do your part in keeping the shed safe, clean and orderly by removing excess packing, bags or boxes from items if not needed for storage, while in the shed.
