Event Details

RethinkWaste invites you to join us at our no-cost Earth Day event taking place Saturday, April 29th from 10AM to 2PM!

This no-cost event will include:

  • Shoreway Facility Tours: Get a unique, behind-the-scenes look at where your compost, recycling, and landfill items go!
  • Book Swap: You are welcome to contribute to our community book swap. Bring a book or two to drop off and grab one in exchange!
  • Clothing Swap: Participate in our community clothing swap! Bring clothes you no longer wear in clean, gently-used condition and trade with others.
  • Puzzle Swap: Bring your old puzzles to switch them out for “new” ones!
  • Raffle Prizes: We will have several different Earth-friendly raffle prizes available for both the morning and afternoon event slots. You must be present to win. Limit one prize per household.
  • Trash to Art Contest Winner Recognition: Please join us in honoring the Trash to Art Contest winners. Our Trash to Art Contest is held every year in recognition of Earth Day to inspire 3rd-5th grade students to turn everyday trash and recyclables into art. More information about our Trash to Art Contest can be found at: https://www.RethinkWaste.org/trashtoart

Registration is required for tours and general admission to the swap. The event will be held rain or shine.
