Press Release

Goods Exchange Day – Saturday, July 25, 2020

Owen Sound, Ontario
Monday, July 20, 2020

We are asking that anyone participating in the Goods Exchange Day please follow the outlined guidelines to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:


·         Wipe any and all items with disinfectant before placing them at the side of the curb.

·         Keep at least 2m (6ft) distance from others.

·         Wash and disinfect any and all items before use if possible.

·         Wash your hands when you return home from bargain hunting.



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 inside by 6:00 PM the same day.


To ensure that items at the curb are intended as Goods Exchange Day items, we ask that residents tie a white plastic bag to one of the items at the curb or place a sign that says “FREE” on the items.


Participating in Goods Exchange Day diverts usable items and materials from landfill disposal. It is also a great way to offer your unwanted items to others without the hassle of hosting a garage sale.


As always, residents are reminded to please drive carefully, watch for pedestrians, and obey traffic laws in their search for curbside bargains.


For more information, please contact Cassandra Cesco at 519-376-4440 ext. 3223 or email at
