SUMMIT, NJ - Whether one wants to swap until they drop or simply grab 'n go, the onset of autumn brings another chance to do some seasonal sorting, find some hidden treasures, and help the environment all at the same time.
The Summit Free Market returns for two consecutive Saturdays -- October 12 and 19 -- from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day at the City of Summit Transfer Station.
The student-run Summit Free Market Committee hosts seasonal events at the Transfer Station where residents are able to bring reusable, yard-sale quality items to share, and take whatever they may want or need at no charge.
Since its inception in 2008, the Summit Free Market has served more than 5,000 residents and has kept over 130 tons of reusable material from the waste stream. The Summit Conservancy is continuing to raise funds with a goal to establish a permanent home for the Summit Free Market that in the spring of 2020.
The City of Summit Transfer Station is located at 40 New Providence Avenue.
