Kick It to the Curb.....May 29th - 31st
Don't put your useful but unwanted items in the garbage. Give them away during Kick it to the Curb. The idea of the weekend, which starts at sunrise on Thursday May 29th, is to simply place any of your unwanted household items at the curb on your front street marked with FREE signs or stickers, and people can just come and pick up the items that households no longer want.
Items must be removed from the curb by 1:00 PM, Sat., May 31st.
Giveaway etiquette:
The Town of Trochu reminds residents to take only the items at the curb marked FREE, respect other people's property by not walking on people's lawns or gardens and to consider safety when deciding which items to give away.
Go to for more details.
