  • Costume Swap at the Dearborn County Recycling Center

    The Dearborn County Recycling Center’s Costume Swap was created as an annual event offering customers the chance to share and reuse costumes that would otherwise only be worn once. Last year over 800 individuals used the program. The program saves money and reduces waste by reusing items that otherwise would only be used once. Over 1,000 costumes for adults and children are available. Masks, wigs, makeup, accessories, treat bags and décor are also available. All available costumes are clean and in good condition, with many being brand new. The sizes of costumes range from infant and toddler to adult sizes. Costume Swap even has a small selection of pet costumes. Participants are asked to bring a costume that is clean, in ready-to-wear condition, and free of rips, tears, and stains. To be considered for exchange, all costumes must also be complete with original items, including masks and accessories that came with the costume originally. Those without a costume to exchange are asked to make a cash donation to the reuse program. Shopping times and the number of guests allowed to shop at a time will be limited. Visit dearborncountyrecycles.com for more information. Participants should be prepared with a donation in case their costume is not accepted. The program does not operate as a charity. Costume Swap is open to everyone; it is not exclusively for Dearborn County residents.
