What is Kick it to the Curb?
Kick it to the Curb is a city-wide event aimed to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Residents are encouraged to place their unwanted but reusable items at the front of their curb marked with a ‘FREE’ sign. Residents are also able to explore the rest of the city to find treasures that are marked with a ‘FREE’ sign.
When is this year's Kick it to the Curb?
Spring: June 9-10, 2018 Fall: October 13-14, 2018
Here's how Kick it to the Curb works:
Giving items away
- Place unwanted items at the curb
- Mark items with the word "FREE" using masking tape, stickers, or FREE tags (pdf)
- Ensure anything you want to keep is well away from your give-away items
- At the end of the weekend bring any uncollected items back into your home. They can be donated to a charity such as Women's Outreach Shoestring Depot, Habitat for Humanity, sold or given away on websites such as Kijiji and Freecycle.
