Giveaway Day is an eco-friendly community event initiated by the Green Task Force where residents can put lightly used household items no longer needed curbside for pickup.

“The Giveaway Days have proven popular with city residents, having now completed two thanks to an initiative through the city’s Green Task Force,” said Green Task Force Chair Councilor Chris Malette. , in a new version.

“We believe that a summer of downsizing, people on the move and cleaning unused items from our homes provides another opportunity to save many household items from the landfill. As we saw on our successful spring cleaning day, we hope that the late summer day will once again provide an opportunity to share with our neighbors things we may not need, but that others might find useful.
