Since it opened in late 2009, the SWAP SHOP at the Darien Recycling Center has been a local hot spot. Staffed entirely by volunteers, the Swap Shop saves taxpayers dollars by reducing the amount of waste we pay to have hauled away. A few simple guidelines: items dropped off must be in usable or repairable condition. No TVs, air conditioners, clothing, mattresses or cribs. Hours are 7 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. and a valid permit is required for entry. Best of all, no swaps are required to shop! Residents can take what they want and contribute as they see fit.
Linda, Danny, and Kathy are a few volunteers extraordinaire who assist residents and keep the Swap Shop organized and running smoothly.
Recycling Center Permits must be affixed to the drivers side windshield to gain access into the Darien Recycling & Refuse Center or the Darien Swap Shop.
