The City does not warrant or guarantee the quality of any item.  Participants dropping items off do not have to stay until the end of the event.

Items are intended for free reuse and not for resale or personal profit.  Please take only what you or your non-profit need.  If you are interested in reselling items, please come back at the end of the day to see what is left.  For additional information, call 425-430-7396
