Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Remember it's giveaway weekend

It's giveaway weekend on Saturday and Sunday May 10 and 11. Time to clean house.
These are just a few of the special items that CBC is letting go...including a one of a kind George Stroumboulopoulos bobblehead. CBC is taking these souvenirs out to the curb - in honor of Giveaway Weekend. Join Information Radio host Marcy Markusa after 8 a.m. on Friday May 9, just outside the CBC building at 541 Portage Avenue. (Sandra Thacker/CBC)

After you rake your boulevard this weekend, think about filling it up with stuff. Used stuff. Stuff you don't need anymore. Stuff someone else might want.

Giveaway weekends in Winnipeg happen twice a year. For 2014, that means May 10/11 and September 6/7.

Here's what to do:

- round up items like books, cds, furniture, toys, clothes, tools, household materials, kitchenware, etc. 

- mark each item with a FREE sticker or sign

- place items at the edge of your curb, lawn or yard (and put away other items nearby that you want to keep or else they may disappear!)

- if anything is leftover, take it back to your basement or garage by dusk on Sunday

Here's what NOT to do:

- don't put your items on someone else's lawn

- don't let your items block or hinder traffic 

- don't give away items infested with bed bugs ie: mattresses or bedding

Hear Darryl Drohomerski, Manager of solid water servies for the City of Winnipeg on Information Radio on Friday morning, May 9. After 8 a.m., come on down to the CBC sidewalk at 541 Portage Avenue for our own mini-giveaway.
