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.
