SAVE’s Next Free SWAP
Saugus Action Volunteers for the Environment (SAVE) once again joins with the Friends of Breakheart and DCR to sponsor another “It’s New To You” SWAP in conjunction with Breakheart’s 2019 Fall Festival on Saturday, September 28, 2019. The SWAP is part of SAVE’s continuing efforts to increase recycling by re-purposing still usable goods.
The SWAP – an effort to help keep usable items out of the waste stream – will be held from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Breakheart Christopher P. Dunne Visitors Center, 177 Forest Street, Saugus. And don’t forget to also bring your worn-out athletic shoes for drop-off in our recycling bin as we plan to once again participate in the Nike Reuse-a-Shoe Program. The donated shoes are ground up and purified to become material that will eventually become part of sports surfacing products, including safety playground surfacing.
This is a FREE event, no money, just a simple swap. You can bring items or take items, you do not have to do both. Feel free to bring usable items in good condition to the SWAP, typically those things you no longer want but that are too good to throw away, or simply come by and browse — you may find a treasure or two to take home with you. (Please, do not bring items that require special disposal.)
