Kick your unwanted items to the curb this weekend! It's the Fall Curbside Giveaway Weekend!

Winnipeg's bi-annual Curbside Giveaway Weekend, the fall edition, takes place this weekend. One of the more popular weekends on the calendar, Curbside Giveaway is a great time to get rid of gently-used, unwanted items that others may want.

To participate, just place your unwanted household items at the curb with a sign or sticker that says FREE on each item. Make sure all your other property is stored out of sight, so it doesn't get taken by accident. And you must remove all leftover items from the curb by sunset on Sunday.

There are many different items you could give away, including:

  • books, CDs and DVDs
  • furniture, electronics and small appliances
  • sports equipment and toys
  • yard and gardening tools
  • kitchen gadgets, dishes, etc.
  • unwanted gifts
  • construction material
  • clothing

Please do not put unsafe items, items that could have bed bugs, or toilets that flush more than 13 litres on the curb. Unsafe items can include things like lawn darts and baby walkers.

If you are on the hunt, only take items marked FREE, and make sure they are in good condition before taking them. Do not drive on private property or litter. Continue to obey all traffic laws and watch out for children all weekend.

What are you on the hunt for this year? Let us know in the comments on Facebook!
