Curbside Giveaway Weekend September 11 and 12

Winnipeg’s next Giveaway Weekend is planned for this Saturday and Sunday, September 11 and 12.

It’s your chance to go through unwanted items lying around your house and put them curbside for others to come and take at no charge.

It’s the third time the city has held Giveaway Weekend and it appears to be a growing success.

As university and college students get settled into a new semester this month, work stations and desks are in high demand, as well as night stands, tables and other furniture to accommodate a small dorm room.

As usual, place a sign that says “FREE” on the items near the curb that you no longer need. You can download free stickers to affix to your items from the City of Winnipeg website.

Anything that isn’t picked up should be removed from the curb by dusk on Sunday.

For information on items that aren’t safe to give away (e.g., baby walkers, lawn darts) visit the Consumer Product Safety Bureau.
