To mark the 47th anniversary of Earth Day, a Give & Take will be part of the free Monroe County Earth Day event at the Monroe Campus of Northampton Community College Route 715 in Tannersville on April 22.
A great way to reuse items that are too good to throw away but you just don’t have a use for them anymore – just bring along any gently used items between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., then take away anything you want from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. – it’s free!
You don’t have to bring something to take something. Leftover items stay within the community and are donated to local nonprofit organizations like Salvation Army, Pleasant Valley Ecumenical Network, churches, etc.
You must provide your own vehicle for transporting items. There will be volunteers assisting and reviewing the items being dropped off.

Besides the Give & Take Day, there will also be Exhibitors, Live Music, children's activities, and much more.
Electronic waste recycling, Tire Amnesty (Monroe County residents only) will also be available. Eight tires will be recycled for free. Recycling is sponsored by the Monroe County Municipal Waste Management Authority.
For Earth Day, there are new additions to the Monroe County Trail map-- Parks, Nature Preserves & Open Space Properties. The map now includes locations of Food Pantries and Thrift Stores in Monroe County along with Dog Parks. The map is also accessible online.
