September 9, 2017 - September 10, 2017
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.

- Remove leftover items from the curb by dusk on Sunday.
Examples of giveaway items include:

- 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)
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.
