Swap Shop

While dropping off household hazardous wastes come visit our Swap Shop.  We offer many household products such as cleaners, detergents, weed killer, bug spray, and a variety of items dropped off at the HHW Facility that are still useable and often times brand new and never opened.  We also have 5 gallon buckets of latex paint that are available for Town residents.  The paint comes in light brown (tan), and gray. Quantities are limited to 25 gallons per resident during time when there is a high demand for the recycled paint.  Currently, there is a waiting list for brown and tan colored paint.  Swap Shop items can vary and are limited to a first come first served basis.
