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.”

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.
