Turn your Trash into Treasure

Using Less - Living Better


cid:image010.png@01D726D9.406E7B20The Swap Shed is scheduled to reopen May 1 at the Transfer Station!  

The Swap Shed helps reduce the amount of waste that ends up in the trash compactors and bulky waste containers, yielding significant savings in disposal costs and keeping it out of our landfills. Accepted items are gently used household, yard, and sports equipment items that are in good condition, have all their parts, have been checked to make sure they work, and have been cleaned for Swap shoppers to see their re-use potential. The swap shed is located in the back of the transfer station, behind the bulky waste containers, adjacent to the dog pound.

If you are interested in volunteering a few hours a month to help manage the swap shed, please contact the Selectman’s Office:  firstselectman@unionconnecticut.org or (860)684-3812.
