Don't throw it away, swap it
Do you have loads of stuff that you no longer use or need? Then why not take part in The Big Aussie Swap? It's a great way to get rid of stuff that you don't want any more and pick up something that you need or maybe even pick up a real treasure item.
You know the old saying ' one man's trash is another man's treasure'. Well, what you might think is rubbish could be just what someone else is looking for - so bring it along to The Big Aussie Swap and swap it.
Proudly organised by the City of Perth, and as part of Planet Ark's National Recycling Week, The Big Aussie Swap will take place from Monday 12th November till Friday 16th November, 2012. The Big Aussie Swap will be held each day in a Pop Up Shop in Carillon City Arcade, Hay Street Level, Perth from 11am until 3pm.
This fantastic idea is simple. Bring in your pre-loved items and exchange them for a token, these tokens can be used to select other pre-loved items of your choice. There is a maximum of three pre-loved items per person and you get one token for each item that you surrender.
The Big Aussie Swap is a fun, free way to get rid of your old stuff, help the environment and get some new stuff - maybe even find a real gem.
So, come along to The Big Aussie Swap in the Carillon City Arcade and start swapping - there are some real treasures out there just waiting to be found.
