In case you hadn’t heard, the Re-Use-It Swap Shop at Needham RTS has reopened! Yes, you can now drop off reusable items that are in good/usable condition, and/or shop for items that you need/want. This is a great resource for keeping items out of the waste stream – remember, your trash is another Needhamite’s treasure!
The “Swap-it” shop is located in a small, green building on the left-hand side as you drive into the RTS. The hours are Tuesday – Friday 7:30 AM – 3:00 PM, and Saturday 7:30 AM – 4:00 PM (but items can only be dropped off until 3 PM). The Swap-it Shop is closed on Paint Saturdays – the third Saturday of the month, April through October. The Swap-it Shop is now on a seasonal schedule – it will be open from April 1st through Nov. 30th. So, check it out before the season closes on Nov. 30th!
Donated items must be complete, unbroken, in good working condition, and reasonably clean. A good guideline: Would you bring the item into your own home in its current condition? Metal items in good condition, such as patio furniture, lamps, bicycles/tricycles, sleds, planters, hardware, and tools are also accepted.
Below is a partial list of unacceptable items:
