In Brattleboro...

SWAP PROGRAM: The Windham Solid Waste Management District Swap Program on Old Ferry Road is open every Saturday from 8:30 a.m. until noon. It is a free outlet for materials that are still usable, but for which there is no traditional re-use program. People are asked to use all other available outlets before bringing items to the Swap Program. Items brought in may be passed along to other non-profit groups.

Items brought in must be in usable condition and must be accepted by a staff member before being left. Due to the need to close promptly at noon, large loads of donations may not be accepted after 11:45 a.m. Everyone is welcome to bring in or take out materials. It is not necessary to do both.

Some items that usually are not accepted are appliances, upholstered furniture, carpet, computers, mattresses, clothes and tires. These items may be placed on Freecycle at

Items available this week include: baskets, ironing board, books, end tables, plastic wading pool, umbrella stroller, baby swing, Christmas tree stands, bathroom sinks, windows, cutlery trays, dish drainers, microwave dishes, mops, artificial tree, television, and hanging file rack.
