Drop and Swap Program

Is your house getting a tad cluttered? Do you want to get rid of household items you no longer use? Hold up on throwing them in the trash. A family, organization or individual could greatly benefit from your hand-me-downs. 

The Drop n Swap program, which enables the exchange of reusable items, has been set up at the Clairmont Centre for Recycling and Waste Management. An area has been set up designated for gently used items such as furniture, appliances, tools and construction materials that anyone can drop off and/or pick up at no charge.

The following is a list of a few things the County Drop n Swap Program will accept:

Arts & Crafts Supplies Metals Kitchen Supplies
Home Décor Office & School Supplies New, leftover or reusable construction materials
Media Paper products Various other items
