Trash to Treasure

2017 - Oct Trash to Treasure

It’s Trash to Treasure (T2T) time again! In celebration of Waste Reduction Week, the Regional District of Central Kootenay is promoting a Trash to Treasure Day event on Saturday, October 21, 2017.

What is Trash to Treasure? T2T Day is a waste reduction event that provides residents with an opportunity to give away unwanted but useful household items to those who may find value in them. Participating in T2T Day is easy and encourages re-use while diverting waste from the region’s landfills. After all, “one person’s trash is another person’s treasure”!

On Saturday, October 21st, 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” or “Free” sign (sample available on our website) 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.

The RDCK will be advertising Trash to Treasure in local newspapers, on local radio stations, on our website and on social media.

We are kindly asking for your assistance in getting the word out by printing/posting the attached poster in your reception area or other such location so the poster is visible by the general public as well as advertising the event on your website.

If you have any questions please contact Travis Barrington at or (250) 352-1526.
