Pender Harbour Transfer Station Share Shed Re-Opening Soon!

Tags:  2023 | News Release
Date Released: March 29, 2023

The Sunshine Coast Regional District’s (SCRD) Pender Harbour Transfer Station will be re-opening the share shed on April 5.

The share shed is a space at the transfer station for users to leave an item that could be picked up and reused by another member of the community at no charge. The share shed will be open from Wednesday to Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

It’s important for residents to note that the share shed is not there to bypass paying for waste brought to the transfer station. The share shed is being reintroduced as a six-month pilot program where items can be dropped off at no cost. This will be reassessed and drop off charges may be applied in the future.

Pender Harbour and Egmont residents are encouraged to contribute good quality items that are no longer wanted but could still be used by others in the community. Staff at the site will be providing quality control of the items going into the share shed and will have the final say on whether items can be added.

The following items are permitted (must be clean and in good/working condition):

  • Children’s toys
  • Housewares
  • Furniture (as space permits)
  • Small appliances
  • Large appliances (in neutral colours and as space permits)
  • Sports equipment
  • Tools

The following items are not permitted:

  • baby/child safety items (including car seats)
  • Clothing, fabric, textiles, bedding, curtains, towels
  • Construction materials
  • Household hazardous waste program (paint, cleaning products, or fuel)
  • Mattresses
  • Liquids of any kind
  • Sofa beds
  • Liquids of any kind
