ChathamRecycles to host 6th annual book & media swap this month

Drop off, pick up and trade books, CDs, DVDs and more

Already read all the books on your shelves? Want some new music to listen to or a new movie to watch? Check out ChathamRecycles's 6th annual free book & media swap on Friday, March 20 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday, March 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

This popular media recycling event, free and open to the public, will be held in the lower level of the Chatham Town Annex at 261 George Ryder Road in Chatham. 

Bring your unwanted books, CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes, cassette tapes and vinyl records to the annex starting Monday, March 9 (Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. until Friday, March 20). Sorry, no encyclopedias. 

ChathamRecycles hosts the swap to keep books and media in circulation and out of the waste-stream. 

You don't have to drop off media to take media and you don't have to live in Chatham, the event is open to all.

Any materials leftover at the end of the event will be given to an organization that gives free books to schools and non-profits in the state and to troops overseas. The remainder of the books and media will be sold via an online store, according to a ChathamRecycles release.

ChathamRecycles also maintains a media collection bin at the Chatham Transfer Station which also serves to keep books, CDs and DVDs out of the waste-stream.
