Trash to Treasure

Saturday, May 13, 8am-5pm

This is an  opportunity for Leslie Park residents to give-away gently used, unwanted possessions to others. The goal is to reuse items rather than sending them to the landfill.

How to participate:

  • Leave your unwanted, gently used items (toys, small furniture, books, clothing, accessories, kitchen items, etc.) on the lawn in front of your home for treasure hunters to pick up.

  • Include a sign that says "FREE" with your items and remember to take anything leftover in at the end of the day.

Consider donating items that are not picked up through local charities or by advertising  in local Facebook groups such as the Buy Nothing Group Baseline West or the Leslie Park Circular.
