Neighbourhood Curbside Giveaway

Neighbourhood Curbside Giveaway

Saturday, September 30, 2017
10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Zone 5 – Park Avenue Area

Residents in Zone 5 are being asked to set out unwanted, reusable bulk items prior to their bulk garbage collection day. The curbside giveaway is a great way to get FREE items –  maybe a new couch, an antique lamp or even a new coffee table! One person’s garbage is another person’s treasure. By setting out unwanted items before they end up in the landfill, you are making a positive impact on our environment!

Rules for Zone 5 Residents

Free items must be labelled as FREE and placed at your curb by 10:00 am on Saturday, September 30, 2017. Giveaway items should be in good condition for reuse. Bulk garbage collection is scheduled for Monday, October 2, 2017. Caution is advised that any items remaining at the curb on Monday will be collected as bulk garbage. Please use discretion when placing unwanted items at the curb, as this event is rain or shine.
