How will the Swap Shed function? Will items left there be charged?

The Swap Shed is currently closed due to the pandemic. When it reopens, new policies will be implemented to prevent items from being put in the swap shed to avoid the bulky waste disposal fee. 

Bulky items that can be reused should be donated to charitable organizations listed on the Bulky Waste donation/recycle information sheet, or otherwise sold or given away. Some of the organizations listed will pick items up.
