Today kicks off Curbside Giveaway Weekend in Dauphin.

Those wanting to give unwanted, reusable household items away can put them at the curb in front of their home.

The event is hosted by the City of Dauphin and Communities in Bloom.

Deputy City Manager, Lisa Gaudet says the event wasn’t able to take place last year because of the pandemic.

“I think that people are very interested in doing a fall cleanup and giving away reusable and unwanted items to a new home to keep them out of a landfill, so we decided to go ahead with the Curbside Giveaway Weekend again this year."

Lisa gave some suggestions for keeping the event safe.

“I think it’s a good idea to sanitize the items, and as long as people are wearing masks and social distancing I think that would keep the event safe.”

Those wanting to participate should label each item with a “FREE” sticker or sign, and remove leftover items by dusk on Sunday.

Any items left out will be removed and disposed of by the City of dauphin for $50.
