stop swap

Do you have stuff you want to get rid of? Do you like to browse other people’s stuff? Great! There’s a perfect event for you this weekend.

WHAT: Free Stop ‘N’ Swap Community Reuse Event

WHEN: Sunday, April 30, 11am2pm

WHERE: PS 84, 32 W 92nd St, (The event is inside the building.)

The public is invited to bring clean, portable, reusable items to share with those who can use them. No one is required to bring something to take something — you can simply show up with a bag and see what’s free for the taking. Books, toys, fashionable clothing, housewares and electronics are just some of the offerings.

Stop ‘N’ Swaps have developed a regular following among thrifty and environmentally conscious New Yorkers.  In response to increasing demand for the events, GrowNYC has set a goal of hosting one swap in each of the city’s 59 community districts each year. “Everyone knows New Yorkers have the best stuff. And you can find it for free at Stop ‘N’ Swap!” said GrowNYC Executive Director Marcel Van Ooyen. “These events bring neighbors together and reduce the city’s carbon footprint by facilitating reuse and encouraging waste reduction.”

Anything leftover at the end of the day is donated or recycled. Furniture and other large items are not accepted at the swap
