Large item pickup is coming up quickly through the Fall Cleanup from Sept. 11-15, 2023 — but there’s another option for getting rid of your items that won’t see them ending up in a landfill.

The Put-And-Take – Front Yard Edition! – gives you the chance to put any unwanted (but still usable) items out the weekend before Fall Cleanup. Residents are then invited to go around Town to see what others have made available for free to their neighbours!

Put-And-Take items should be placed where waste carts are normally picked up, with a makeshift sign on them that reads “FREE.” You don’t want your neighbours picking out the wrong items, so make sure to remove any confusion by moving items you don’t want taken completely away from the curbside collection area, or clearly labelling those items with a sign that says “Do not take.”

We’re excited to see what treasures you might find!
