Our Mission

The Summit Free Market is a program that aims to reduce the amount of reusable material that enters Summit’s waste stream through a reuse initiative. Summit residents can donate their no longer needed yard-sale quality goods and provide them to members of the community in need who can take those goods for free. By working together, we can help those in our community while also helping the environment by reducing waste.
