PreCycle Day - New COVID-19 Guidelines

Saturday, August 8, 2020

PreCycle Day is a Worthington-wide, curbside, free exchange of re-usable items. Follow the link for new guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Worthington’s PreCycle day is on! Saturday, August 8th from 9:00 to 5:00.
To prevent the spread of COVID-19, please follow these important guidelines: 

Setting things out – Sanitize First!

  • Please do not put items on the curb if you are showing any symptoms
  • Please wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before setting anything out at the curb
  • It is a good idea to also wipe down anything that you touch once it is on the curb (or wear gloves when setting it out)

Picking things up – Treat the items you pick up much like the library handles book-drop and other returns by doing the following:

  • Bring hand sanitizer and/or gloves. Did you touch something? Use that hand sanitizer now!
  • If you pick something up to bring home, consider setting the item in your garage or outside for 24 to 72 hours prior to using. Now that you’re home, wash your hands!
  • Wipe the item down using bleach, disinfecting wipes, disinfectant spray, or 70%+ isopropyl alcohol. Done wiping it down? Wash your hands!
  • Now that the item is home, and you are thinking about where to put it and what to do with it, why not celebrate by washing your hands again?


Please wear a mask and practice social distancing with a 6-foot distance between others.  

What is PreCycle Day? 
A city-wide free exchange of reusable, no-longer-needed items, at curbside in front of your homes. It's easy! Here's how:

  • Set out re-usable items (not trash) and then check out other offerings in your neighborhood.
  • Please keep items neat and orderly.
  • All treasures that you claim are in an "as is" condition.
  • Everything is free and is located curbside or in driveways or front lawns along the sidewalks.
  • Shoppers, do not confuse PreCycle items with non-PreCycle items in the front yard.

Remember:

  • PreCycle Day is not a garage sale. Garage sale permits are not being issued at this time.
  • Since PreCycle Day is on Saturday, there is no trash pickup for the next five days. Please remove all leftover PreCycle items at your curb by 6pm Saturday.
