    Marion County Hosts Free Toy Swap

    Posted by: Public Works - Environmental Services

    ​Save a little cash and reduce your environmental impact this holiday season

    We've all been there. We buy our children toys that they outgrow or lose interest in before the toy has hardly any wear or tear. What do you do? Well, if you're interested in trading them for a something your child does enjoy, we've got the perfect event for you!

    Marion County Environmental Services and the Marion County Master Recyclers are hosting a FREE Toy Swap!

    On December 6, bring any gently used, clean toys to Faith Lutheran Church, 4505 River Road N. in Keizer, on Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. You can also visit our webpage at www.mcrecycles.net for various drop off locations in Salem and Keizer. Then on Saturday, December 7, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., attend the Toy Swap at Faith Lutheran Church where you can shop for free to find toys and gadgets for your loved ones.

    This is a great time of year to share toys your children aren't using and pick up items for holiday gift giving. "Swaps are a great way to share materials and connect with the community. Swaps enable us to avoid throwing usable items away and helps showcase how fun reuse can be," said Jessica Ramey, a Waste Reduction Coordinator with Marion County.

    To learn more about this event, contact Jessica Ramey at Marion County Public Works, 503-365-3180 or email jsramey@co.marion.or.us.
