goodsexchange-featureThe second of three Goods Exchange Days for 2015 will be taking place on Saturday July 25. It's like a City-wide Free Yard Sale.

Goods Exchange Day is an enjoyable way to divert usable items and materials from landfill disposal. It is also a great way to get rid of unwanted stuff without the hassle of having to put on your own garage sale.

We ask that City residents place unwanted but still usable items at the curb in front of their homes after 8:00 a.m. on Saturday July 25. Everyone is encouraged to take a look around and pick up items that they can re-use. Popular Goods Exchange Day items include sporting goods, furniture, small appliances, books, art, tools, toys, doors, sinks, windows etc. Anything that does not find a new home must be taken back in by 6:00 p.m. as there will be no special municipal collection.

In order to ensure that items at the curb are indeed intended as Goods Exchange Day items, we ask that residents tie a white plastic bag to one of the items at the curb.

As always, we ask that residents please drive carefully, watch for pedestrians and obey traffic laws in their quest for curbside bargains.
