Swap Shed Re-Opens – Still Looking for More Volunteers

The Swap Shed at the Transfer Station re-opened this past Saturday, September 18, for the first time since April 2020. It is, as they say, “under new management.” Rather than town transfer station employees keeping an eye on the comings and goings, the Swap Shed is now entirely volunteer-run, much like other towns in the area including Lincoln and Arlington. Last weekend the Swap Shed was open with four volunteers each working two-hour shifts.

Unfortunately, the Weston Swap Shed may have issues staying open if more volunteers are not found. So far there are only eight active volunteers (though a recent Faceboook post on the Communitty page has atracted the interest of at least seven more).

Volunteer Paul Angiolillo commented:: “All of us found it pretty easy and fun: lots of appreciation, lots of neat stuff, and almost all the users seemed to understand the new policy of paying to dispose of bulk items and the swap shop not able to take items like stuffed chairs, air conditioners, larger furniture, and so on.”

The Weston Transfer Station Swap Shed is currently open only on Saturdays from 8 am to 4 pm, because of volunteer constraints. If you want to learn more and/or volunteer for a two-hour shift (with no regular monthly commitment), and see what it’s like, send an email to westonswapshed@gmail.com. Remember….there are treasures in there…and no more snakes for sure…

Oh all right, since you asked…yes, Cornelius the Snake really was a thing…
