The Fall Give Away Weekend takes place this Saturday, October 24 and Sunday, October 25 2015.
Don't put your unwanted stuff in the garbage. Set them out at the curb on Give Away Weekend. Tour your neighbourhood, community and city to find hidden treasures.
Rules for setting out items
Place items at the curb
Place stickers or signs on items with the word "FREE"
Ensure any items that you want to keep are away from your giveaway treasures or tucked away safely in your garage
At the end of the day, bring any uncollected items back to your home
Give Away Weekend etiquette
Respect other people's property, don't walk on people's lawns and gardens
Take only the treasures marked free at the curb
Don't discard previously picked-up treasures on another person's lawn
Please consider safety when deciding which items to set out to the curb.
The Consumer Product Safety Bureau of Health Canada advises that used children's items such as baby walkers, yo-yo balls, cribs, car seats, strollers, playpens, bath seats, mattresses, blinds, toys and other child-related items should not be placed at the curb for Giveaway Weekend.
