Community-Wide Free Stuff Swap

Help save the earth and your budget by sharing and getting great stuff for FREE!

Civic Center Park, 11am-5pm, Saturday April 20, 2019

It’s that time of year!  Spring cleaning and clearing out those closets, garages, sheds, basements… might as well go through the whole house while you’re at it.  Bring the items that no longer serve you to the Free Stuff Swap Party at Earth Day Fort Collins.

Help save the earth and your budget by sharing and getting great stuff for FREE!

STEP 1:

Go Marie Kondo on your closet and the rest of your residence. Bring us your clean items in great condition that no longer “spark joy.”

STEP 2:

See the list of items we will NOT be accepting below. Make sure you don’t bring those because we will not accept them.

STEP 3:

Come to the designated drop off zone at Earth Day Fort Collins on Howes St. where our volunteers will approve your items and will help you unload them.

    • Want to be a volunteer? Sign up here and get first pick of some great stuff!

STEP 4:

Calmly and politely explore the exchange and take home any items you want for FREE!

STEP 5:

Congratulate yourself and your friends on your sweet scores and savvy shopping!
