The Medford Township Clean Communities 3rd annual Town-wide Yard Sale & Appreciation event 
set for Saturday, May 16th
Goodwill Donation Truck & Shredder also available at event 


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, 2015 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 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 repurposed 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’ x 10’ location.  Pre-registration is requested by May 11th 2015 to bportocalis@medfordtownship.com. 
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.  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, as well as collection of TV’s and computers which they recycle as a component of their job-training initiatives.   

A shredder truck will also be in the Park from 9 am until 1 pm for residents to dispose of personal files and papers.  There is a limit of 10 boxes or bags of files per resident.  

If any community group wishes to participate in a neighborhood or park clean-up on May 16th or any other time of the year, please contact Judy Scherf, Medford’s Clean Communities Coordinator, at 609-654-6791 x322.  The Township can provide bags, litter grabbers, gloves, safety vests, etc. and other resources.
