Winnipeg’s Fall curbside Giveaway Weekend is coming September 10 and 11, and it is the perfect time to find a new home for your gently-used, unwanted items. This is also the perfect time to hunt for some new to you treasures in your neighbourhood, community and city.

 

Tips if you are giving away items

·           Place unwanted household items at the curb on your front street

Tips if you are cruising the curbs looking for treasures

·           Don't walk or drive on private lawns or gardens

·           Don't discard any items on private property
