About the Summit Free Market

Founded in 2008, the Summit Free Market is a volunteer, student-run program that works to reduce the amount of reusable material that enters Summit’s waste stream. Since its inception, an estimated 2500 Summit Free Market volunteers have kept more than 160 tons of reusable material from the waste stream, saving the City of Summit more than $25K in garbage tipping fees through its popular and successful community reuse initiative. The Summit Free Market holds events on the second Saturday of each month.
