Residents are encouraged to participate in Carleton Place Freecycle taking place Friday June 3 through Sunday June 5. Freecycle is a movement intended to reduce the amount of unwanted items that get sent to the landfill.
To participate, place unwanted re-usable household items at the curb in front of your home on June 3 with a sign or stickers indicating FREE for take-away by neighbours and other residents. Freecycle happens rain or shine - use your discretion when deciding whether to put items at the curb.
Examples of 'freecycling' items include: books, CDs and DVDs; furniture, electronics and small appliances; sports equipment and toys; yard and gardening tools and equipment (e.g., lawn mowers, snow blowers, rakes, shovels); kitchen gadgets, dishes, cutlery, pots and pans; construction materials (e.g., nails, paint, wood); and clothing.
Items not picked up by 9 p.m. Sunday evening are the responsibility of the homeowner/residents and must be returned to their homes. Leftover objects will not be collected by the Town.
