Kick it to the Curb this weekend in Sylvan Lake

Residents can reduce, reuse and recycle belongings curbside Aug. 11-12.

The Town of Sylvan Lake is once again holding its Kick it to the Curb event.

The annual event helps locals to clear out belongings in their home them may no longer want and give them away to another family.

The Town says all items participating in the town-wide event should be “unwanted, but reusable and safe household items.”

The event runs from Aug. 11-12 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day.

Participating in the event is simple, and free. All homeowners have to do is place their unwanted belongings on the curb Saturday morning with a sign with FREE written on it.

Residents can also register for the event by contacting the Town, prior to Aug. 11.

“Registration is not required; though, doing so ensures your items appear on … the Town’s Facebook Page,” a press release from Sylvan Lake states.

All items must be removed from the curtsied by end of day on Aug. 12, according to the Town.

“Remaining items may be taken to the Sylvan Lake Drop ‘N Swap tent, located at the Waste Transfer site for no charge.”

Items the Town says are acceptable to rheum through the Kick it to the Curb event include: kitchen items, sports equipment, unwanted gifts, electronics and furniture.

However, child-related items such as toys, furniture, or accessories, household bedding, or any unsafe items should not be rehired through this event, as per guidelines from Health Canada.
