Saturday is Goods Exchange Day in North Bay

North Bay, ON – September 21, 2016 – Do your part to reduce, re-use and recycle by actively participating in the City of North Bay’s Goods Exchange Day.

On Saturday, September 24, residents are encouraged to place any unwanted but still usable goods curbside.  Re-usable items might include furniture, clothing, books, tools, sporting goods, toys, doors, windows, sinks, etc.

Goods Exchange Day is a lot of fun (it’s a city-wide free yard sale) and helps protect the environment in two ways: it cuts down on garbage that would otherwise end up in the City’s landfill, and re-using items saves energy and the environmental impact of producing new items (such as the pollution created when goods are manufactured).

Residents are asked to place items out after 8 a.m. and remove any left-over items before 6 p.m. on Saturday.  There will be no special City pick-up of any items left curbside.

Residents collecting Goods Exchange Day items are asked to drive safely, watch for children and obey all traffic laws.

The City of North Bay is a city of 54,000 people situated between the shores of Lake Nipissing and Trout Lake. For information on City services and programs, North Bay residents, businesses and visitors can visit www.cityofnorthbay.ca
