Plan Your Own Curbside Swap!

CP17-130

Do you have unwanted, usable household items?  Do you want free stuff?  Curbside Swap it!  The City of Saskatoon encourages individuals and neighbourhoods to organize their own Curbside Swap.

The Saskatoon Curbside Swap program is a series of community-organized events where residents place unwanted items in good condition – clearly marked FREE - on their curbs for anyone to pick up. At the end of the day, residents return unclaimed items to their home along with their newfound treasures.

Giving used items a new home keeps them out of our landfill and swapping helps to build a sense of community. It’s a fun and environmentally friendly way to find free stuff and get rid of unwanted (but usable) items.

Some items you might find at a Curbside Swap include:

  • Appliances
  • Bicycles
  • Tools
  • Furniture
  • Books/movies/CDs/DVDs
  • Building material
  • Computers and electronics
  • Yard and garden equipment
  • Clothes
  • Sporting goods

To get started with organizing a community-wide swap, contact your Community Association. Promote your event and share your information with your friends on the 2017 Curbside Swap Facebook Event page at Saskatoon City News.

A community-wide Curbside Swap will take place on Saturday, September 9, 2017.
