Reusable household goods drop off in East Gwillimbury


NEWMARKET The Regional Municipality of York, in partnership with Goodwill Industries, will have a truck available to collect reusable goods on Saturday, October 16th from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon in the parking lot at the East Gwillimbury Sports Complex.
 
The Sports Complex, located at 1914B Mount Albert Road in Sharon, will accept old clothes, shoes, books, toys, housewares and electronics that are in good condition, as part of a pilot project to recycle goods.
 
Residents are encouraged to bring their housewares so that others can use items they no longer require.  The drop-off is an excellent means of diverting unwanted items from landfills.
 
Drop off locations are being considered for other parts of York Region, pending the success of the East Gwillimbury pilot.
 
For more information about the drop-off, please call 905-830-4444, extension 5717.
 
Please note that the Environmental Services Committee of East Gwillimbury is also holding a plastic drop-off day on Saturday, October 16th from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon in the parking lot at the East Gwillimbury Sports Complex located at 1914B Mount Albert Road in Sharon.
 
Non-blue box plastics, except #3 polyvinyl chloride (PVC), will be collected.  Please pack items in clear plastic bags.
