EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ – Area residents are invited to bring their castoffs and hunt for “finds” at the next Freecycling event sponsored by the Friends of the East Brunswick Environmental Commission.  Freecycling will take place in the parking lot of Crystal Springs Family Aquatic Center, 380 Dunhams Corner Road, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, October 26.

Items may be dropped off that day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and picked up until 2 p.m. Usable items must be offered for free, or “freecycled.”

Freecycling gives unwanted used items a second life, keeping them out of landfills. It can be a fun treasure hunt for those looking for unusual items. Participation is free.
