BRATTLEBORO -- The Windham Solid Waste Management District Swap Program on Old Ferry Road is now on winter hours. The Swap Program will be open Saturday, Jan. 12, and the second Saturday of each month (weather permitting) from 9 a.m. to noon. Due to the need to close promptly at noon, large loads of donations may not be accepted after 11:45 a.m. Due to space considerations there may be stricter limits on items that can be accepted.

The Swap Program is an 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. Everyone is welcome to bring in or take out materials. It is not necessary to do both. Items must be accepted by a staff member before being left.

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 www.freecycle.org.

Items available this week include: Speakers, televisions, terrarium, child’s potty, Nordic Track, table lamp, books, children’s ride-on toys, assorted tins and baskets, Hoover floor polisher, baby swing, and bathroom sinks.

Swap Program info is available at windhamsolidwaste.
