How Kick it to the Curb works:

Safety

Do not participate in Kick it to the Curb if you or any member of your household is feeling ill. Thoroughly sanitize items that you put out and pick up at curb sites. Be aware of and obey all public health recommendations, including maintaining a 2 metre distance between you and others.

Health Canada advises you to be aware of the potential risks of acquiring second-hand items. Learn more about what items to avoid, such as car seats, helmets, and some toys.

Giving items away

Taking items

  • Take only the items at the curb marked "FREE".
  • Respect property; don't walk or drive on lawns or gardens.
  • Don't discard items on another property.
  • Sanitize items before bringing them into your home.

Trash to Treasure Swap Meet

On these weekends between noon and 5 p.m. you can bring your small, usable items to Kerry Wood Nature Centre and browse for new-to-you treasures. Contact Waskasoo Environmental Education Society for more information.
