Winnipeg residents might want to start gathering some of their unwanted stuff for the annual spring giveaway weekend. The ‘one man’s junk is another man’s treasure’ celebration is scheduled for this weekend, Saturday, May 10 and Sunday May 11.
Books, clothes, compact disks, furniture, electronic, sports equipment, gadgets, tools — whatever you no longer wish to keep in the garage or basement — are OK to give away.
The city wishes that you do not put out any unsafe or soiled (or bed bug infested) items. Also on the ‘do not try to unload on your neighbour’ list: toilets with a flush volume of 13 litres or more. Other toilets are fine.
The city reminds participating homeowners to place unwanted household items at the curb on their street and to label each item with a ‘free’ sticker or sign. Residents are asked to please remove leftover items from the curb by Sunday evening.
