Ready to Rendezvous?

Where do you keep your old DVDs? How about that pile of perfectly good kid's toys that they outgrew years ago? If you have stuff that you no longer need but that you haven't quite managed to take to the secondhand store, now is your opportunity to have your things become someone else's treasure at the 5th annual Reuse Rendezvous.

Reuse Rendezvous will help you declutter and is great way to practice the second R in Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. This year, Reuse Rendezvous will be September 9, 10 and 11. Participating is easy:

 

• Simply register your items on our interactive map and pick up your free lawn sign.
• Set items in front of your house on Friday evening (be sure to mark them as “Free”)
• Visit other locations to find new treasures
• Take unclaimed items back into your house by 7:00 on Sunday evening.


For more information about this year's Reuse Rendezvous, visit our website, connect with our Facebook event page or use #lethreuse2016 on Twitter and Instagram.

Happy treasure hunting!

Summer Movie Preview
Our next Summer Movie is the Clean Bin Project, the story of a head to head competition to see who can swear off consumerism and produce the least garbage. Join us on July 27 at 7pm at 319-6 St. S. in Letbhridge for this free screening. Click the image to see the trailer.

We Have a Question!

 Water (conservation tips, water issues)
 Local Food (community gardens, pollinators)
 Recycling (waste reduction, composting)
 Renewable Energy (wind and solar power)
 Climate Change (energy efficiency, adaptation)
