Neighbourhood Swap Meet & Shredding Event

by GS GS |

COQUITLAM, BC, Tuesday, May 20, 2014 – In an effort to help you with your spring cleaning, the City of Coquitlam is hosting a swap meet and paper shredding event Saturday, May 31, 2014. 

Spring is a good time to clean out your closets and find a new home for items that are no longer needed. It’s also a great time to organize and safely dispose of your household paperwork and personal files. If paperwork is not properly disposed of, you could be at risk for identity theft and robbery. 

Swap Meet
The swap meet, hosted at Glen Pine Pavilion (1200 Glen Pine Court), is a great place to find gently used household items, homemade goods and more. The event runs from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and entrance is free. This is a cash-only event so be sure to bring cash to purchase goods. 

If you would like to sell your household items at the swap meet, you must register for a table in advance. Tables are still available and the registration cost is $12.00. Register to sell by calling 604-927-4386. 

Shredding Event
On the morning of the swap meet from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., you can bring your personal files and paperwork to be securely shredded. This event is sponsored by the Glen Pine 50 Plus Society, Best Shredding, Just Junk, S.H.A.R.E. and Home Instead Senior Care. 

For more information about the Swap Meet and Shredding event please call Glen Pine Pavilion at 604-927-6940.
