Swap Shack

The Middletown Swap Shack is located at the Recycling Center  on the corner of Johnson St and North Main St.  It is open the same hours as the Recycling Center.    Residents are welcome to bring usable goods they no longer need for someone else to enjoy.  Residents are also welcome to take anything in the Swap Shack for their own use.   

  • We ask that people bring only usable items, such as household goods, books, toys, kitchen items, office supplies, clothing.  Do not bring broken items than no one will want.    
  • Since the building is small, we cannot accept furniture or large items for reuse.  We suggest you bring those to the Cromwell ReStore or ReConnstruction Center.  
  • Unpack your belongings.  Please don’t bring your items in bags or boxes and dump them.   Unpack the items onto the shelves for display.  

Our Swap Shack is maintained by wonderful volunteers and we appreciate everyone taking good care of it.   


Please note the Swap Shack is currently closed due to COVID-19. We are in the process of improving the Swap Shack for future use.  Please follow the Public Works COVID1-19 page for up-to-date information on closures and openings.
