City opens Swap Shed

Another Person’s Treasure………SWAP SHED

The City of Woonsocket is taking recycling to the next level with the opening of a Reusable Goods Building.

The building is dedicated to the temporary storage of collected and distribution of reusable goods such as: dishes, small appliances, toys, tools, fixtures and nick-knacks.

The building does not exchange:


                -Hazardous Materials

                -TV’s/Computer Monitors

                -Large Furniture

                -Large Appliances

                -Mattresses, boxsprings, futons, pillows

Items must be in good condition.

The building is for Woonsocket Residents ONLY (ID’s will be checked), and is not for commercial users.

City Solid Waste Division attendants will monitor the building and items brought in for drop off.  Unacceptable items will be turned away and the resident will have to remove and properly dispose of them.

Keeps reusable’s out of the landfill and saves you money!
