Third ‘Giveaway Weekend’ on Saturday and Sunday

Giveaway Weekend (TED GRANT / CHRISD.CA FILE)

The city is holding its third Giveaway Weekend on Saturday and Sunday, where residents are encouraged to place unwanted items on the curb for others to come pick up for free.

It’s an opportunity to find reusable items that owners no longer need, but may be useful to others.

The city is reminding residents to place “free” stickers on items and leave them at the curb on their front street.

The most common items seen on the curb in previous years have been books, CDs, DVDs, electronics, sports equipment and kitchen gadgets.

An emphasis this year is being put on preventing the spread of bedbugs, so linens, mattresses and furniture are some items residents should not be giving away.

All items must be removed by dusk on Sunday.

The City of Winnipeg’s fall Giveaway Weekend will be September 10 and 11, 2011.
