Not sure what to do with your old blue boxes? Winnipeg Harvest could use them.
The local food bank has partnered with the city to collect unwanted recycling blue boxes at three separate depots this month.
Blue boxes that are in good condition will be used by Winnipeg Harvest for food collection, delivery of emergency food hampers, and storage in the warehouse. Containers that are not reusable will be recycled by the city.
Winnipeg Harvest is also encouraging residents who drop off a bin to make a non-perishable food item donation.
The following depots are open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for three Saturdays:
- Saturday, November 10 — Winnipeg Harvest, 1085 Winnipeg Avenue
- Saturday, November 17 — 1539 Waverley Street at Chevrier Boulevard
- Saturday, November 24 — Parking lot opposite 849 Ravelston Avenue West
