May 13 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Saturday, May 13, 2017
10 AM – 3 PM
Location: Zone 4 Bulk Garbage Collection Area
Admiralty Wood Neighbourhood

Residents in Zone 4 are being asked to set out unwanted, reusable bulk items prior to their bulk garbage pick up on Monday, May 15. 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!
