Winnipeg’s 2024 Spring Curbside Giveaway Weekend Place May 11 & 12

Winnipeg’s Spring Curbside Giveaway Weekend will take place on May 11 & 12, 2024.

The giveaway weekend is designed to give you the opportunity to find new owners for items that are in good condition and you no longer require. They keep items out of our landfill.

How to Participate in Giveaway Weekend

  • Place unwanted, reusable household items at the curb on your front street
  • Label each item with a “FREE” sticker or sign
  • Keep any items safely stored away that you don’t want to give away
  • Remove leftover items from the curb by dusk on Sunday

List of Items You Can Giveaway

  • Books, CDs, DVDs
  • Furniture, electronics, artwork, mirrors
  • Sports equipment, toys
  • Yard and gardening tools and equipment (e.g., lawn mowers, snow throwers, rakes, shovels)
  • Small appliances, kitchen gadgets, dishes, cutlery, pots and pans
  • Construction material (e.g., nails, paint, wood)
  • Clothing

List of Items You CAN NOT Giveaway

  • Items harbouring bed bugs (e.g., mattresses, furniture, bedding)
  • Toilets (with a flush volume of 13 litres or more)
  • Visit the Consumer Product Safety Bureau to find out about items that aren’t safe to give away (e.g., baby walkers, lawn darts)

Giveaway Rules and Tips

  • Take only the items at the curb marked “FREE”
  • Check all items closely for bed bugs before you put them in your vehicle or bring them into your home
  • Respect other people’s property – don’t walk or drive on people’s lawns or gardens
  • Giveaway items should still be in good condition
  • Don’t discard any items on another person’s lawn
  • Obey the traffic laws at all times (e.g., don’t block traffic, park illegally or block people’s driveways with your vehicle) and watch out for children

What to do with Leftover Items

  • Use the Recyclepedia to learn where items should go – a 4R Winnipeg Depot, or a local charity.
  • Consider donating unwanted items to:
    • Canadian Diabetes Association (clothing only)
    • Goodwill Industries
    • Salvation Army
      • Thrift Stores (during business hours)
      • Donation Centres
      • Warehouse located at 25 Furniture Park Road (off Gateway)
      • Pick up of large items (i.e. furniture) by calling 1-800-PLS-GIVE (1-800-757-4483)
    • Local community gifting groups. You can find many of these groups on Facebook by searching for ‘Buy Nothing’ and choosing your local area’s group.
  • Bulky items (e.g., furniture, mattresses) left at the curb won’t be picked up with regular garbage collection. Contact 311 or arrange for a large item pickup online, for a fee.
  • Leftover construction and renovation material won’t be picked up with regular garbage collection. Please take it to a landfill.
