Give Away Day

June 3, 2017

  • Items may be place at the curb anytime after 8 am on Pick-up Day
  • Items must be removed from the curb by 8 pm on Pick-up Day

How does Give Away Day work?

Leave unwanted, reusable items at the end of your driveway with a sign labeled “FREE”.  However, any items that are not claimed by 8:00 p.m. on  Pick-up Day must be removed from the curbside by the owner.

What should I put out for Give Away Day?

Items may include electronics, furniture, tools, lamps, dishes, toys, books, sports equipment, etc.  All items must be reusable and in good working condition.

Do I need to ask the homeowner if I can take the item?

No!  The purpose of Give Away Day is that you do not need to ask the homeowner!  As long as there is a sign attached to the item that is labeled “FREE”, the item may be taken.  Residents wishing to put items out for Give Away Day must place a sign labeled “FREE” on all items, so that there is no confusion.  The Town of Arnprior is not responsible for any items.

If the items are not taken, what should I do?

Any items not claimed by 8:00 p.m. on Pick-up Day, must be removed from the curbside by the owner.  The Town of Arnprior will not be responsible for any unclaimed items and there will not be a special garbage collection.  You could consider bringing the item to a second hand shop, posting the item on a website or in the newspaper, or asking friends and family.  If the item is reusable and in good condition, there is likely someone that could use it!

 

Please note that RAIN OR SHINE this event will continue!
