Fall Freecycling Day is Oct. 5 in East Brunswick


A Fall Freecycling Day will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 5 at the East Brunswick Community Arts Center, 721 Cranbury Road.

Items may be dropped off until 1 p.m. Browsing concludes at 2 p.m.

A semi-annual event, Freecyling Day offers area residents an opportunity to discard usable, unwanted household items in an environmentally-friendly way. After dropping off their items, they can also hunt for “finds” from small furniture and housewares to toys and tools.

There is no charge to participate in this “free trade” event. All items must be offered for free, for personal use and not for resale.

Recommended freecycling items include clothing, shoes, bicycles, fish tanks, dishes, pots and pans, toys, silverware, small appliances, tools, power tools, kitchen items, garage items, electronics and pet supplies. Large furniture pieces will not be accepted. It is recommended that boxed toys, games and anything with small parts be taped shut.

Prohibited items include mattresses, televisions, computer monitors, paints, VHS tapes, computer disks, paints, pesticides, tires, toiletries, unframed mirrors, food or any hazardous materials.

The Friends of EBEC reserves the right to reject items.
