Storage- $150 per month or
$1800 for the year
Moving Truck Rental-$300 per swap
Packing Tape- $20
New HY-Swap Banner- $100
HY-Swap Volunteer Tee Shirt-$25

Where do I go?
Hyattsville Municipal Building (4310 Gallatin Street), First Floor
Multi-purpose Room, and check out our large tent outside for overflow large items (think strollers, furniture, high chairs, cribs). Plan to park in the lot at the building (except for the spots marked Reserved for Hyattsville Police), or in the lot across Gallatin to the south (Lot 4), or in the lot by Franklins across Route 1 (Lot 1). Here's a handy parking map: http://www.hyattsville.org/DocumentCenter/View/3569
**We ask that you leave strollers and other large items outside in our "Stroller Parking Lot" so there is room to move around inside.**
Do I have to GIVE in order to TAKE?
Nope! The spirit of the HY-Swap is to support the community and pay it forward - take what you need now, and if you have items to give at future swaps, great! Donations are from the local community, for the local community.
Is it free?
Yes, the swap is free, but we welcome cash donations to help cover our costs.
