Free Halloween costume at swap
There is still time to participate in the Dearborn County Recycling Center’s 9th annual Costume Swap event. It will be open noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. Oct. 24, and Friday, Oct. 26. Last year 350 individuals used the program. The program saves money and reduces waste by reusing items that otherwise would only be used once.
Nearly 1,000 costumes for adults and children are available. Masks, wigs, makeup accessories and décor are also available.
Participants are asked to bring a costume (clean and in good condition) to exchange for a new or gently worn costume.
Single items may be exchanged for similar items (e.g. a mask can be exchanged for a mask). Those without a costume to exchange are asked to make a donation to the reuse program.
Costume Swap is open to everyone; it is not exclusively for Dearborn County residents.
Dearborn County Solid Waste Management District is located, 10700 Prospect Lane, Aurora.
