Kick it to the Curb this weekend

(Red Deer, Alberta)

The spring Kick it to the Curb is this weekend, June 10 and 11. Residents are encouraged to repurpose unwanted goods and find new homes for still-useful items. Unwanted items can be placed at the curb and marked as “free” so others can find a new life for them.

Waskasoo Environmental Education Society also holds their Trash to Treasure Swap Meet this weekend, where residents can bring their items and browse for new-to-them treasures.

This year, residents are encouraged to use social media with the hashtag #RDKickIt2017 to post pictures of their unwanted items so others can easily find some new treasures. Popular items to set out include furniture, books and toys. To see a list of prohibited items such as child car seats visit the webpage.
