At Stop ‘N’ Swaps, New Yorkers bring items they no longer need and find things that are new to them. Stop 'N' Swaps encourage reuse, build community, and reduce the waste NYC sends to landfills.

GrowNYC invites you to bring clean, reusable, gently-used portable items such as clothing, housewares, games, books, and toys that you no longer need, and take home something new to you, free! You don’t have to bring something to take something. The only things they don’t take are large items/furniture.

Become a Volunteer

Help GrowNYC create an event where people find things they need and reduce waste! By volunteering, you will create an opportunity for people to bring things they no longer need instead of throwing them away, and find things they do want without manufacturing, packaging, or transportation.

As a volunteer you will help receive, sort, and display the gently-used items that people bring. You might also help keep areas neat, take pictures, or help promote some of the other great work GrowNYC's Zero Waste Program does!

You must be at leat 18 years old to volunteer. If you're interested in becoming a volunteer, please email ymihojevich@grownyc.org or create a volunteer profile via this link . Search for the Stop ‘N’ Swap of your interest and register to volunteer.
