UPDATE: Due to heavy rain forecasts throughout the weekend, we’ll be moving the QTN Giveaway Day to Saturday July 3rd (rain date Sunday July 4th). We hope this gives everyone some extra time to declutter their homes.
Time to get rid of your unwanted items and turn them into treasures! The QTN Giveaway Day will take place on Saturday July 3rd (rain date Sunday July 4th).
Start decluttering your home and then place your gently-used items at the curb in front of your house on QTN Giveaway Day. Be sure to place a sign marked with the word ‘FREE’ to make it clear that they are free for the taking.
QTN Giveaway Guidelines:
- Place items at the curb in front of your home.
- Place stickers or signs on the items with the word ‘FREE.’
- Ensure any items that you do not want taken are kept away from items placed at the curb.
- At the end of the day, bring any uncollected items back into your home. Consider donating them to a local charity.
Treasure Hunting Etiquette:
- Respect other people’s property; don’t walk on people’s lawns or gardens.
- Ensure you adhere to social distancing and follow Ottawa Public Health guidelines
- Take only the items marked ‘FREE’ and placed at the curb.
- Don’t leave previously picked up items on the curb at other people’s property.
