Curbside Swap

Curbside Swap

Join us for the fall Curbside Swap on Saturday, September 10 from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm!

The spring event was held on June 4, 2022 and featured 350 listings, with residents swapping everything from desks and chairs to teddy bears!  

Curbside Swap events are your opportunity to reduce the amount of garbage going to the landfill by giving away your unwanted items or by going on a citywide treasure hunt to find some new-to-you items. Anyone can plan a Curbside Swap just by putting out items at the front of your property with a "free" sign.
Consider coordinating with neighbours or contact your Community Association to plan a swap for your whole neighbourhood.
