To unload unwanted but usable items in an environmentally sustainable way, visit East Brunswick’s Freecycling Day from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 27 at the East Brunswick Community Arts Center, 721 Cranbury Road.

Items may be dropped off for freecycling at the Community Arts Center from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. with browsing and pickup until 2 p.m. In the event of rain, check friendsebec.com for updates.

Freecycling offers people an opportunity to discard serviceable household items and also scout for “finds” they can use. There is no charge to participate in this “free trade” event and all items must be offered for free.

Recommended items include clothing, shoes, bicycles, dishes, pots and pans, toys, silverware, small appliances, tools, power tools, kitchen items, garage items, electronics and pet supplies. Large furniture pieces will not be accepted. It is recommended that boxed toys, games and anything with small parts be taped shut.

Prohibited items include mattresses, televisions, computers and monitors, paints, VHS tapes, computer disks, pesticides, tires, toiletries, unframed mirrors, food or any hazardous materials. The Friends of the East Brunswick Environmental Commission reserve the right to reject items.

Volunteers are needed to help staff the event. Information can be found at friendsebec.com/freecycling.htm.
