Family Winter Gear Swap!

January 7, 2020 Family Winter Gear Swap!

Zero Waste Yukon is co-hosting a winter gear swap with the Yukon Literacy Coalition on Family Literacy Day, January 26th at Shipyards Park!

From 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, bring your gently used winter gear and swap it for something new to you!

We’re looking for donations of gently used winter clothing and equipment for the swap! This includes:

  • gloves, mitts and toques
  • jackets and parkas, snowsuits and boots
  • ski and snowboard equipment
  • snowshoes
  • ice skates


If you have something that isn’t on this list, get in touch to see if we can take it!

If you don’t have something to swap, don’t worry! We’ll be accepting donations so that we have extra stuff to give away!


Can’t make the swap but have something to donate? Please bring it to one the following locations:


Smaller items like mitts and toques can be brought to:

Yukon Literacy Coalition (#207-100 Main St., 2nd floor Horwoods Mall)

Family Literacy Centre (2nd floor, Canada Games Centre)

Larger items like parkas and winter sports equipment (skis, etc.) can be brought to Zero Waste Yukon’s offices upstairs at Raven Recycling!
