The Regional District of the Central Kootenay is encouraging residents to celebrate the annual Trash to Treasure (T2T) day this Saturday.

A zero-waste focused event, residents are provided with the opportunity to give away unwanted (but useful) household items. To participate, residents are to place the items (books, bikes, clothing, toys, furniture, etc.) together at the front of their property with a T2T sign so people know they’re allowed to take the items. All untaken items should be removed by 4 p.m.

“It’s been hugely successful before and I’m sure it will be again this year,” Coun. Kevin Chernoff told city council on Monday night.

T2T signs are available on the RDCK’s website at rdck.bc.ca.
