This coming Saturday and Sunday is your opportunity to find a new home for those items that are cluttering up you basement or garage. Winnipeg’s Giveway Weekend is a great way to keep unwanted reusable items out of the landfill and put them back into use. Remember that one person’s trash is another’s treasure!
All you need to do is place those unwanted items on the curb in front of your home and label them as “FREE.” It will amaze you to watch what you felt no one would ever want quickly disappear.
For more information on the Giveaway Day see the City of Winnipeg website.
Not going to be around next weekend? What about items that don’t disappear? Here are some options for re-purposing items:
- Canadian Diabetes Association (clothing only)
- Goodwill Industries
- Salvation Army Thrift Stores
