UAF to host Really Free Market on May 20
May 12, 2023
The University of Alaska Fairbanks will host the Really Free Market recycling event on Saturday, May 20, in the parking lot next to the Lola Tilly Commons.
It’s the 13th year for this popular free recycling event, which helps find new homes for items donated by the Fairbanks community.
Donated items must be clean, safe and usable. Clothing, sporting goods, furniture, appliances, tools, gardening equipment, kitchen and bath items, tires, toys, and even toilets are some of the items that have been donated in the past.
The market has a drive-up lane, and volunteers will be there to help unload donations from 8 to 10 a.m. Organizers say more volunteers are needed to help with set-up during those hours.
The market will only be open to shoppers from 10 to 11 a.m. All items are free for the taking, with no selling, bartering or swapping allowed. Following the event, unclaimed items will go to Green Star of Interior Alaska, the Closet Connection and the Literacy Council of Alaska.
