MEDFORD >> The Medford Township Clean Communities Program invites all local residents and community groups to participate in its third annual town wide yard sale and Community Appreciation Day to be held Saturday, May 16 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Freedom Park, located at 86 Union Street.
There is no cost to participate in the yard sale, but items offered for sale should be “pre-loved,” created from re-purposed materials or be plants. All sales and proceeds go to the participating individual or community group. Participants must provide their own table(s) and chairs for an approximate 10-foot by 10-foot location. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for registration information - preregister by May 11.
In appreciation of the many community and civic groups who perform neighborhood and park clean-ups throughout the year, township and Clean Communities officials are hosting a community appreciation celebration to recognize the efforts of these groups in keeping Medford free of litter and trash. There will be free refreshments, recycling giveaways, games and special entertainment for everyone!
Goodwill Industries of Southern New Jersey & Philadelphia will be on-site to collect donations during the event, and will also be available to leave any unsold items at the conclusion of the Yard Sale. Goodwill will also collect TV’s and computers which they recycle as a component of their job-training initiatives.
A shredder truck will also be in Freedom Park from 8 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. for residents to dispose of personal files and papers. There is a limit of 10 boxes or bags of files per resident, and this service is also free for residents. (No businesses)
If any community group wishes to participate in a neighborhood or park clean-up on May 16 or any other time of the year, contact Judy Scherf, Medford’s Clean Communities Coordinator, at 609-654-6791, ext. 322. The township can provide bags, litter grabbers, gloves, safety vests, etc. and other resources.
Plan to celebrate spring at this wonderful community event.
