Time for a really big spring clean in the Kootenays

RDCK District announces return of the "Trash to Treasure" initiative

'Free Stuff'

The Regional District of Central Kootenay has announced the return of the “Trash to Treasure” initiative; a semi-annual waste reduction effort happening on Saturday, April 20.

Residents are encouraged to place gently used, unwanted household goods at the front of their properties in a safe, easy to access location that day.

Think of it as a really big, free garage sale.

Others can them come by, see if they might be able to make use of the item(s) and take them for themselves.

Signs should clearly indicate what is free for others to take.

By 4 p.m., any leftover items should be gathered back up and taken inside.

The RDCK website has Trash to Treasure lawn signs available for download: www.rdck.bc.ca
