Trash to Treasure this weekend

Annual community event provides an opportunity to get rid of unwanted items

The Trash to Treasure event in Hope continues to grow in popularity every year.

Treasure hunters from Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Harrison Hot Springs join locals annually in their search for new items throughout the community. Organized by Hope Communities in Bloom, the one-day event will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday (June 21).

“We’ve definitely had more phone calls about it this year,” said HCIB chair Victor Smith. “We want to recycle stuff so it doesn’t end up in the landfill. Leave it out front and it will be gone.”

Residents are encouraged to place unwanted household items in front of their property with a sign clearly identifying them as “Trash to Treasure,” or “T2T.” Since this is not a district-run program, homeowners are asked to remove all remaining items by 4 p.m. as they will not be picked up by the District of Hope or First Class Waste Services. For more information, visit the Hope Communities in Bloom page on Facebook.
