Trash to Treasure coming soon in the RDCK

Semi-annual waste reduction event happens Saturday, Oct. 19.

This Trash to Treasure sign can be downloaded at the Regional District of Central Kootenay website (http://rdck.bc.ca). The waste-reduction event runs Saturday

It’s Trash to Treasure time again! The RDCK’s semi-annual celebration of waste reduction is happening on Saturday, Oct. 19.

This one-day event provides participants with an opportunity to give away used items to those who may find value in them. This is also a chance for residents to search their community for their neighbours’ unwanted treasures.

On October 19, residents are encouraged to place any gently-used, unwanted household goods together at the front of their property in a location that can be safely accessed by treasure hunters.

A sign should clearly indicate which items are available to take home. By 4 p.m. the same day all remaining items should be gathered up and taken inside.

Please keep your community clean by removing unwanted items!

Visit the RDCK’s website to download a Trash to Treasure sign for your property: www.rdck.bc.ca.
