Winnipeg spring curbside giveaway weekend

Many great activities and family events available this upcoming weekend, the days are starting to get a little bit longer, which gives us even more time to enjoy what Winnipeg has to offer.

Twice a year Spring Curbside Giveaway Weekends are held in Winnipeg, the next one will take place on Saturday, May 11 and Sunday, May 12, 2019.

You’ll often find some items in good condition that you’ll never use again. Rather than throw them away, Giveaway Weekend gives you the opportunity to find new owners for those items.

If You’re Giving Away Items:

  • Place unwanted household items at the curb on your front street.
  • Label each item with a FREE sticker or sign.
  • Store items out of sight that you don’t want to give away.
  • Remove leftover items from the curb by dusk on Sunday.

Examples of giveaway items include:

  • books, CDs, and DVDs
  • furniture, electronics, and small appliances
  • sports equipment and toys
  • yard and gardening tools and equipment (e.g., lawn mowers, snow blowers, rakes, shovels)
  • kitchen gadgets, dishes, cutlery, pots, and pans
  • unwanted gifts
  • construction material (e.g., nails, paint, wood)
  • clothing

Do not put out:

  • items that could be unsafe
  • items infested with bed bugs (e.g., mattresses, furniture, bedding)
  • toilets (with a flush volume of 13 litres or more)

If You’re Looking For Giveaway Items:

  • Take only the items at the curb marked “FREE.”
  • Check all items closely to ensure they are safe and in good condition before you put them in your vehicle or bring them into your home.
  • Don’t walk or drive on private lawns or gardens.
  • Don’t discard any items on private property.
  • Obey the traffic laws at all times (e.g., don’t block traffic, park illegally or block driveways with your vehicle).
  • Watch out for children.

Another curbside Giveaway Weekend will take place in the Fall.

All Winnipeggers know about such giveaways that are held twice a year. You can really find stuff you need or just some cool things and pieces of décor, but what really makes a difference is clothing, so people in need are able to find things they really will appreciate.

Winnipeg annual bike auction will be held on April 27-28

Winnipeg Transit
Updates On Rapid Transit In Winnipeg   Construction of Rapid Transit in Winnipeg continues, and there’s a lot to unpack.

That step has been put on hold as of summer 2019 as the City develops their new Transit Master Plan. We’re going to take a deep dive into the Southwest Transitway and then we’re going to take a look at some of the propo...
Winnipeg Residential Water And Waste Fees
The City of Winnipeg is in the process of debating an increase to water and waste rates. To understand the impact this potential increase could have, it’s important to look at a few factors. First, we will analyze how these fees are structured and what they fund. Then, we will look at why an increase is being proposed in the first place. Finally, it will be helpful to compare our fees to the fees in other Canadian cities, though this can be trickier than y...

Volunteers are really making a difference in helping those who are in need. We are talking homeless people, poor, sick, disabled, children without parents…, the list is endless, so each volunteer, each day and each hour they give and provide the service, really helps those people and the cities to stay cleaner and a better place to live in. Some Winnipeggers living in homeless camps just outside of the downtown core say they prefer the autonomy of the camp...

Our City, Our Community: Creating Connections in Winnipeg   There’s a palpable tension in Winnipeg that’s been growing over the past few weeks. You might find this surprising, given we just won the Grey Cup for the first time in decades, but it’s there. This tension revealed itself when the City presented their four-year budget process, in which they anticipate having to make cuts to libraries, fire services, Transit, and more. The budget cuts stem from a...
