First Recycled Swap Shop in Hastings and St Leonards: organised by Transition Town Team

Recycle Swap Shop initiative

Members of the Transition Town Hastings Team have accomplished another of their goals by bringing the Swap Shop initiative here to the town. A brilliant idea where we can pass on the things we no longer want to other people who see our discarded items as discovered treasure – and we can search for things we do need/want.

Here’s Transition Town’s description of how it works and details of when and where:

Recycle Swap Shop: How it works

· You can bring items to the hall and leave them there for others to take away.

· You can look for items you’d like to take away.

· You are welcome to only bring stuff – or only take stuff.

· Leftovers will be disposed of through Freegle, charity shops or recycling.

· No charge for the event, athough donations are welcome!

· Please bring things early – and certainly before 11am

What you can bring

· All items MUST be 100% free and from domestic (not commercial) sources

· If you have bulky items, like large furniture, then please don’t bring these to the Swap Shop. Instead, a notice board will be provided for you to leave a description of your item, along with a contact email address or phone number.

· Don’t bring anything illegal or dangerous (e.g. sharp knives, weapons, etc.)

· No pets or livestock

· No rubbish. Please don’t bring anything that really is no good to anyone

· No mains electrical items
