How does Secondhand Sunday work?
The last Sunday of April and September, you simply place any unwanted but still usable items at the curb in front of your home by 9am. Please contact us so that we can send you a Secondhand Sunday sign to place beside your items.
Once your items are on the curb, that's the big job done! You're welcome to take a walk through the area and see what else is out there - maybe you'll meet some of your neighbours or even find some new-to-you treasures.
After 2pm, we ask that you collect any items still left on your curb and either keep them, or donate them to an appropriate charity or second-hand shop. We will also have volunteers circulating, looking for specific items as requested by area shelters - but bear in mind that we're unable to collect all leftover items.
Does Secondhand Sunday partner with any local charitable organizations?
We do! For the Spring 2016 event, we've reached out to The Stop Community Food Centre, Wychwood Open Door, Na-Me-Res, St. Clair West Services for Seniors, and YWCA Arise Shelter for Women. On Secondhand Sunday, our volunteers will be looking for specific items as requested by these organizations. You can see a full list of the items we'll be looking for here.
