Trash to Treasure Day

One person’s trash is another person’s treasure! In April and October each year, Rideau Lakes residents place their unwanted items at the end of their driveway, with a “FREE” sign, and turn their ‘trash’ into someone’s ‘treasure’.  If you have used items that are of no use to you any longer, but are not quite ready for the landfill, this is the perfect time to get rid of them!
