Hope residents to take part in Trash to Treasure this weekend

Residents can leave their unwanted items out for others to nab for free

It’s time to haul your trash to the curb, Hope.

The Trash to Treasure event is Saturday, June 12, and everyone is invited to take part.

This is a one-day event and a chance to give away unwanted household items, and to re-use treasures from the neighbourhood. To join in, simply gather up your unwanted household items that still have a little life in them.

Place them in a visible location at the front edge of your property, where treasure hunters can safely access them without disrupting traffic.

Then, create a sign announcing that your stuff is in fact meant for Trash to Treasure hunters. This will help people know they are welcome to cart it away.

The event starts at 8 a.m. and ends at 4 p.m. Everyone with items on the curb leftover at 4 p.m. is asked to bring them back.

Trash to Treasure is a group effort to reduce waste, and sponsored by Communities in Blom, the District of Hope, the Hope and District Chamber of Commerce, Save-on Foods, Buy-Low Foods and the Hope Standard.
