As the saying goes, “one man’s junk is another man’s treasure.

Saturday, October 19 is the official Trash to Treasure time again in the Regional District of Central Kootenay.

This one-day semi-annual celebration of waste reduction provides participants with an opportunity to give away used items to those who may find value in them.

This is also a chance for residents to search their community for their neighbours’ unwanted treasures.

On October 19th, residents are encouraged to place any gently-used, unwanted household goods together at the front of their property in a location that can be safely accessed by treasure hunters.

A sign should clearly indicate which items are available to take home. By 4 p.m. the same day all remaining items should be gathered up and taken inside.

Please keep your community clean by removing unwanted items!
