The event, meant to celebrate Waste Reduction Week, invites all residents to place any unwanted items on their boulevard, on Oct. 22nd. Throughout the day, other residents will have the opportunity to travel around the Township looking for amazing finds at no cost.
Items generally found in a Treasure Hunt include: bicycles, clothing, furniture, garden tools, hardware, sporting goods and tools.
All residents will be required to have all unclaimed items returned to their residence by 4 p.m. the day of the event.
According to a Township press release, Waste Reduction Week is designed to raise public awareness about how waste impacts the environment, society and the economy.
This year’s motto is, 'Too Good to Waste'.
The Scugog Treasure Hunt is a perfect example of the Waste Reduction Week motto, as unwanted items, too good to be disposed of in a landfill, can find a home with someone else.
For more information contact Shawna Cornish, at 905-985-7346 ext 112.
All participants will receive a sign indicating their involvement in the sale to be displayed on the boulevard.
