4th Annual Swap Day on October 1


Swap Day is a community reuse event which provides an opportunity to save reusable items from the trash and give them a new life and a new home. Melrose’s 4th Annual Swap Day is on Saturday, Oct. 1, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the parking lot behind City Hall (562 Main Street). Please enter the parking lot in between Memorial Hall and the Fire Station.

This year the event will be run by the Department of Public Works and the Recycling Committee, in collaboration with Birth to Five, and the Pedestrian & Bicycle Committee, which will be collecting and redistributing bicycles at Swap Day this year.

You don’t have to bring something to take something. All items must be clean, gently used, working, complete, and able to be carried by one person. Items will be inspected and approved before they are eligible to be swapped.

Acceptable items: Bicycles, textiles, shoes, books, CDs, DVDs, sports equipment, school/office supplies, small furniture (not upholstered), small electronics and home décor.

Not acceptable items: large electronics (TVs, monitors), large appliances, metal goods, large or upholstered furniture, outdoor or motorized toys.

A full list of acceptable & non-acceptable items can be found here.

Swap Day is an event to benefit the community; please don’t take items for the purpose of resale. All items not swapped will be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters and Bikes Not Bombs.
