The Municipality of North Grenville is holding a special weekend event on Saturday and Sunday next (October 23 and 24). If you have reuseable or unused “stuff” that someone else could use, put it out on the curb this weekend and let friends and neighbours pick it up for free.
Items that can be left out include furniture and small appliances, books, CD’s, VHS tapes, DVD’s, dishes, cutlery, pots and pans, building materials, or any other resueable and unwanted articles lying around the house.
There are a few practical rules to follow. Put the items at the curb, clearly marked “Free”, and make sure nothing that you want to keep is in sight, incase they are taken by mistake! At the end of Sunday, take in everything that has not been taken away. Don’t leave anything uncollected, as the Municipality will not be collecting unwantd items. Residents are completely and solely responsible for putting things away.
This initiative is part of Waste Reduction Week in North Grenville, and is a great opportunity to do something useful with those items that have been cluttering up the house: not needed any more, but too good to simply throw away.
