Trash to Treasure

Trash to Treasure, the same event you have loved for over 10 years with some new exciting changes!

At Trash to Treasure you will find computers (Macs, PCs, and laptops), printers, furniture, bedding, clothing, kitchen appliances and all those fantastic odds and ends pieces.

Come out and enjoy a fun-filled day while supporting the United Way of Columbia County and Partner Agencies at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds!

  • 8 a.m.- Computer Sale kicks off, see below for ticket purchase instructions

  • 8-9 A.m.- Early bird in the non-computer area

  • 9-1 p.m.- General Admission

"Computer/Early Bird" tickets are $5. General Admission, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., is free.

computer tickets sale starts at noon on April 10th

In response to helpful feedback over the last several Trash to Treasure events we have decided to change up the Early Bird ticket process. The tickets you buy ahead of time will now get you a place in line at the event. This means there is no longer a need to camp out for your place in line the day of the event.

Tickets will now be sold in time waves, there will be 15 people in each time wave. Early Bird ticket holders will arrange themselves in a first come, first serve basis within their time wave on the day of the event.

The tickets are only $5.00. They can be purchased online, and at the local United Way office. Tickets will go on sale Monday, April 10, at 12pm both online and at the Chamber of Commerce- 238 Market St. in Bloomsburg.
