Prepare your unwanted treasures for a farewell at the curb — another Giveaway Weekend is upon us.

The City of Winnipeg’s biannual event encourages citizens to leave their unwanted items outside on Saturday and Sunday with a ‘free’ sign attached to them.

Anything from books, CDs and DVDs, to furniture, electronics, sports equipment and kitchen gadgets, there’s likely something for everybody.

If you’re participating, here are a few tips:

  • Place unwanted household items at the curb on your front street.
  • Label each item with a FREE sticker or sign.
  • Keep any items safely tucked away that you don’t want to give away.

Don’t put out…

  • Hazardous material
  • Items that could be unsafe
  • Items that may contain bedbugs (e.g., mattresses, linens, furniture)

Items that didn’t get picked up must be removed by dusk on Sunday, September 11.
