Curbside Giveaway Weekend
The Curbside Giveaway Weekend will take place on Saturday, October 16 and Sunday, October 17.
Residents are encouraged to place unwanted items at their curbs for prospective treasure hunters to haul away. Acceptable items include, but are not limited to: books, furniture, toys, kitchen items, sports equipment, clothing and electronics. Only place items at the curb that are free and clearly marked with a “FREE” sign.
All unclaimed items must be removed by dusk on Sunday. Consider donating unclaimed items to charitable organizations and remember to put any garbage material out on your regular garbage day and week. Regular limits and preparation are required.
Promote your free items and plan your treasure hunt in advance by pinning and viewing available items on the Curbside Give Away map posted at www.halifax.ca/curbside.Residents are encouraged to pin the location and details of items available to assist others in searching and finding specific items by neighbourhood. Share your finds and connect with other treasure hunters on Facebook and Twitter and use the hashtag #hfxcurbside.
This event will happen rain or shine. Residents are reminded to follow public health directives and should only place curbside items that are clean and sanitized.
