Recycle/Reuse yard sale-an opportunity to sell or buy

Waynesboro: Bargain-hunters can experience the "thrill of the chase" in finding yard sale treasures by shopping at Renfrew Institute's sixth annual Recycle/Reuse Earth Day Yard Sale on Saturday, April 30 from 9am-3pm.
The yard sale is held during the institute's Earth Celebration Day and Festival of Art event on the grounds of Renfrew Park in Waynesboro. The yard sale will happen rain or shine-rain location is Waynesboro Area Middle School.
The event is designed for sellers as well as shoppers. Individuals, families or groups can raise funds by renting a yard sale space and selling off unwanted "stuff." Spaces are available for $15 each, double spaces for $25 and triple spaces for $30. Each space accommodates an 8-foot table or two card tables. Sellers must bring their own tables.
In the spirit of recycling, several area groups are collecting items for re-use or proper disposal. The Lion's Club will collect used eyeglasses, and Summitview Elementary School will collect old cell phones and printer cartridges (no copy toner cartridges please).
New this year, thanks to Shippensburg University's Environmental Club, a disposal bin for used batteries will be available. All types of household and electronic device batteries are accepted, except large acid batteries that exceed 11 lbs.
Also new this year, CFAR/Waynesboro Running organizers are collecting "gently used running shoes" to support the Waynesboro Area Middle School running team.
Early birds will find breakfast fare at the yard sale-fresh doughnuts, sweet rolls and croissants donated by Krumpe's Do-nuts and Hadley Farms Bakery, plus hot coffee, tea and cocoa will be offered for purchase. Hot dogs, beverages, baked goods and other tasty items will also be sold, so shoppers and vendors can have breakfast or lunch in the park.
Renfrew Institute is not accepting yard sale items from the public. Pre-registration is preferred for vendors, but you may register upon arrival. No food or drink sales are permitted. For more information and a registration form call the institute at 762-0373 or visit
