Giveaway days

Giveaway Days are specific days when you can put things you do not want any more on your curb that someone else might like or need. Giveaway Days happen a few times each year. Sign up for collection reminders to know when Giveaway Days are happening. 

What to put out 

Only set out appropriate items that others might want. 

Books, CDs, DVDs, furniture and small appliances, electronics, construction materials (including drywall, lumber, hardware), kitchen gadgets, dishes, cutlery, pots and pans.

Baby walkers, cribs, car seats, strollers, playpens, bath seats, mattresses, blinds and toys. The Consumer Product Safety Bureau of Health Canada provides a list of items that should not be given away.

Remember, if your things are not picked up by 6 p.m. on Giveaway Day bring them back inside. We will not take things left at the curb after that, and you might get a fine. If you do not want your things, donate them instead. 

The City of Kingston acknowledges that we are on the traditional homeland of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and the Huron-Wendat, and thanks these nations for their care and stewardship over this shared land.

Today, the City is committed to working with Indigenous peoples and all residents to pursue a united path of reconciliation.
