Kick it to the curb

Don't want it?

Don't need it?

Now is your chance to get rid of it.

This weekend the Sustainable Environment Network Society (SENS) will be hosting another Curbside Giveaway Weekend.

The aim is to reduce the amount of waste ending up in the landfill by diverting unwanted, but still good, items to be re-used by others. 

Reusing household items instead of discarding them reduces the pressure on landfill facilities, is a great way to get rid of under-used items, and perhaps find some great free items of your own.

Giveaway items may include things such as: books, CDs, DVDs, furniture, small appliances, sports equipment, toys, tools, yard and gardening supplies, bikes, construction materials, paint, electronics, clothing, art materials, etc.

Rules for setting out items:

All free items must be placed at the curb on your front street on Saturday morning

Label items with a ‘Free’ sign

Ensure items you do not want to give away are far away from the curb

Remove leftover/unclaimed items from the curb by dusk on Sunday

Giveaway items should still be in good condition for re-use

Unclaimed items left at the curb will not be picked up with regular garbage collection
Giveaway etiquette:

Respect other people’s property – don’t walk or drive on lawns, gardens or go up driveways

Take only the treasures marked free at the curb

Please don’t discard previously picked up treasures on other people’s lawn
