CELEBRATE EARTH DAY!
TRASH TO TREASURE – SATURDAY, April 16th 2016
It’s Trash to Treasure (T2T) time again! In celebration of Earth Day, the Regional District of Central Kootenay is promoting a Trash to Treasure Day event on Saturday, April 16th, 2016.
What is Trash to Treasure? T2T Day is a zero-waste focused event that provides residents with an opportunity to give away unwanted but useful household items to those who may find value in them. Participating in T2T Day is easy and encourages re-use while diverting waste from the region’s landfills. After all, “one person’s trash is another person’s treasure”!
On Saturday, April 16th, residents are encouraged to place any gently-used, unwanted household items (e.g. books, bicycles, clothing, toys, furniture, etc.) together at the front of their properties. Residents should clearly display a “T2T” or “Free” sign (sample available on the RDCK website, click the additional information link below) so that treasure hunters will know which items are available to take home. By 4:00 pm the same day all remaining items should be gathered up and taken off the street.
