List your own event or partake in events created around the city to refresh your space—all while making room at the landfill. #yxeCurbsideSwap
Let’s redefine “what’s old is new again” Saskatoon!
Reduce the amount of garbage ending up in the landfill by giving away your stuff to someone or finding free stuff of your own. At a Curbside Swap, you place your unwanted items in good condition on your property (next to the sidewalk or curb) and mark them as free for anyone to pick up or go out on a treasure hunt of your own to find what your neighbours are giving away for free.
Plan a curbside swap this summer or join the annual city-wide curbside event on September 19, 2020.
Have clean, usable stuff to give away? Want free stuff? Plan your own Curbside Swap or participate in the city-wide Swap on September 9, 2017!
The Saskatoon Curbside Swap program is a series of community-organized events where residents place unwanted items in good condition – clearly marked FREE – on their curbs for anyone to pick up. At the end of the Swap day, residents return unclaimed items to their home along with their newfound treasures.
Giving used items a new home keeps them out of our landfill and swapping helps to build a sense of community. It’s a fun and environmentally friendly way to get rid of unwanted (but usable) items and to find free stuff!
To get started with organizing a community-wide swap, contact your Community Association. To help swap organizers promote their events, the City provides downloadable promotional postcards, posters and ‘free stuff’ signs. Promote your event and share your information with your friends on the 2017 Curbside Swap Facebook Event page at Saskatoon City News.
