Everything you place at the end of your driveway or lawn on the specified day is free for others to pick up. Clearly label items you wish to give away as “FREE” and place them at the curb. Items can be placed at the curb starting at 8am. Anything that does not find a new home must be taken back in by 9pm the same day, as there will be no special municipal collection.
