Fall Curbside Giveaway Weekend

September 9 - September 10

Details

Start:
September 9
End:
September 10

Winnipeg’s Fall Curbside Giveaway Weekend is coming September 9 and 10, and it is the perfect time to find a new home for your gently-used, unwanted items.  This is also the perfect time to hunt for some new to you treasures in your neighbourhood, community and city. 

Tips if you are giving away items:

  • Place unwanted household items at the curb on your front street.
  • Label each item with a FREE sticker or sign.
  • Store items out of sight that you don’t want to give away.
  • Remove leftover items from the curb by dusk on Sunday.

Examples of giveaway items include:

  • Books, CDs and DVDs
  • Furniture, electronics and small appliances
  • Sports equipment and toys
  • Yard and gardening tools and equipment (e.g., lawn mowers, snow blowers, rakes, shovels)
  • Kitchen gadgets, dishes, cutlery, pots and pans
  • Unwanted gifts
  • Construction material (e.g., nails, paint, wood)
  • Clothing

Please do not put out:

  • Items that could be unsafe
  • Items infested with bed bugs (e.g., mattresses, furniture, bedding)
  • Toilets (with a flush volume of 13 litres or more)

Tips if you are cruising the curbs looking for treasures:

  • Take only the items at the curb marked “FREE”.
  • Check all items closely to ensure they are safe and in good condition before you put them in your vehicle or bring them into your home.
  • Don’t walk or drive on private lawns or gardens.
  • Don’t discard any items on private property.
  • Obey the traffic laws at all times (e.g., don’t block traffic, park illegally or block driveways with your vehicle).
  • Watch out for children.
