Free Stuff
The Free Product Room is located inside the Environmental Center. Residents may browse the shelves and take home products such as paint, stain, automotive products, household cleaners, and other products.

All products brought into the Environmental Center are inspected to determine if they are usable products. If the containers and products are in good shape, the products are put in the Free Product Room for others to take. One person’s waste can be another’s useful product!

Please park in the lot on the south side of the Environmental Center.

Participants must sign and date a release form before taking products. You must be 18 years old to participate.
