Officially launched in 2017, our take it or leave it program offers a chance for items you no longer want or need to be reused by others. Shared in the same location as our paint shed, residents are able to drop off and/or pick up items anytime during our operating hours!
What are unacceptable items?
- Mattresses (we recycle these now!)
- Car Seats
- Anything that plugs in (for electrical safety reasons)
Due to limited space, we keep items for approximately two weeks before we divert the unwanted items to the landfill.
If I bring items in for reuse will they count towards my weight?
Yes, we still do weigh-ins to cover program costs.
Often times, we see residents arrive with mixed loads of garbage and reusable items. Other times, items aren't picked up for reuse after the two week mark.
What if I don't bring garbage and want to just browse the take it or leave it?
No problem, just make sure to bring your permit and you are more than welcome to come check things out!
What if I see something in there that I'd like to take but brought garbage in, how will that affect my weights?
We simply ask that you weigh out and let us know that you wish to return to the take it or leave it, you are free to leave after loading.
