"One man's trash is another man's treasure" and some Queens residents found that saying to be true this weekend.
Local non-proft, Grow NYC, hosted a "Stop-N-Swap" event Sunday at the Korean Community Service community center.
The program invites members of the public to drop-off unwanted items like clothes, books, and toys.
The items are sorted and put-on display for others to take, free-of-charge.
Organizers said the goal is to reduce waste and promote recycling across the city.
"I think a lot of people enjoy the aspect of this event where they can see the things that they no longer need actually go to a new home. You know like, it's different from using those bins where you just toss it in and hope it ends up some where good," Victoria Dearborn, Coordinator, Grow NYC.
Grow NYC will host another "Stop-N-Swap" on February 10th at PS 269 from 12PM to 3 PM.
