Giveaway Day on Saturday

It's a good weekend to do some spring cleaning and purging.

Saturday (April 6) is a giveaway day in Kingston- you are encouraged to place unwanted items, like small appliances, kitchen gadgets, cookware, books and other media at your curb, for others who might be interested to pick up.

"Giveaway Days are one of the many tools we have to help keep items out of landfill. If an object can be reused or repurposed, then it truly is not garbage. Please make use of Giveaway Days to help Kingston reach its goal to divert 65 per cent of its household waste from landfill by 2025," says Heather Roberts, director of solid waste.

Just remember to bring the items back inside at the end of the day if anything is unclaimed.
