    From the Winnipeg Free press.

    From last years curbside giveaway: (2011) if you are giving away items:

    • Place unwanted household items at the curb on your front street.
    • Label each item with a FREE sticker or sign.
    • Keep any items safely tucked away that you don't want to give away.
    • Remove leftover items from the curb by dusk on Sunday.

    Examples of giveaway 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 throwers, rakes, shovels)
    • Kitchen gadgets, dishes, cutlery, pots and pans
    • Unwanted gifts
    • Construction material (e.g., nails, paint, wood)
    • Clothing

    Please do not put out:

    • Hazardous material
    • Items that could be unsafe
    • Items that may carry bedbugs (e.g., mattresses, linens, furniture)

    Tips if you are cruising the curbs looking for treasures:

    • Take only the items at the curb marked "FREE."
    • Respect other people's property - don't walk or drive on people's lawns or gardens.
    • Don't discard any items on another person's lawn.
    • Obey the traffic laws at all times (e.g., don't block traffic, park illegally or block people's driveways with your vehicle).
    • Watch out for children.

    I guess someone in my neighborhood thought this started already because just in the last couple of days one of our travel trailer's tires was stolen off of our lawn, it was tucked in behind the camper. Nowhere near the curb, looked like new. We were getting it ready to sell, which is why the tire was out.
