Trash to Treasure is coming soon! In celebration of Earth Day, the Regional District of Central Kootenay is promoting a Trash to Treasure Day event on Saturday, April 22, 2017. This 1-day event provides residents a chance to give away unwanted but useful household items to those who may find value in them. On Saturday, April 22, residents are encouraged to place any gently-used, unwanted household items (e.g. books, bicycles, clothing, toys, furniture, etc.) together at the front of their properties. Residents should clearly display a T2T for “Free” sign so that treasure hunters will know which items are available to take home. By 4:00 pm the same day all remaining items should be gathered up and taken off the street. Please click on the poster for more information or visit www.rdck.ca.
