City of Summit. Conservancy Host 'Party at the Dump!' June 14; Event to Raise Funds for Permanent Free Market Home


SUMMIT, NJ - The City of Summit and the Summit Conservancy are partnering to co-host the “Party at the Dump!” June 14, an event to help fund a permanent home for the Summit Free Market initiative.

This free, family-friendly event will take place from 1 - 4 p.m. at the Summit Transfer Station, located at 41 New Providence Avenue, and include guided hikes along the Passaic trail system by naturalists from Reeves-Reed Arboretum, pop-up yoga classes, baby goats, food trucks, entertainment by DJ Paul Fessock of World of Rock, and live jazz from “Night of the Living Funk.”

A silent auction will offer prizes such as a beautifully restored “Free Market find” table, tours of the Fire House and Police Station, breakfast with Mayor Ellen Dickson at City Hall, and more. Event-goers may also support the Summit Free Market project with the purchase of a custom engraved brick for an outdoor patio on the side of the building.

Currently, the Summit Free Market is held on two consecutive Saturdays in the spring and fall at the Transfer Station. On those days, Summit residents are able to share garage-sale quality items and take whatever they may want or need at no cost.

Since 2008, this exchange system has kept more than 100 tons of reusable material from the waste stream, saved the City thousands in disposal fees and served as a benefit for many residents in our community. With the construction of a permanent home, the Market would be held year-round on two Saturdays each month.
