Postponing their hugely successful annual Mother of All Yard Sales to 2021 was no doubt a difficult decision for the Collingwood Optimist Club to make, but it was the right one. Not to be deterred and yes ever optimistic, they decided to shift gears (bicycle pun intended) and hold a new event Recyclefest over

three weekends in July and August at 30 Sanford Fleming Drive in Collingwood. Accepting donations of used bicycles, clothing, old and broken electronics and parts, and beer and spirit bottles and cans, the recycling drive experienced a tremendous turnout! Photos/Story: Dave West Photography.
