Give or Take Day returns to Kirkbymoorside

It’s time to have a spring clean and take along any unwanted household items to the famous ‘Give or Take’ days run by the Kirkbymoorside Environment Group at the Memorial Hall in Kirkbymoorside on Sunday 29 October 2017 from 9am to 12 noon.

These events have been running in Kirkbymoorside for several years and they have become very popular with local residents.

‘Give or Take’ days are fun, community waste exchange events giving the chance for people to pass on household items, such as clothing or items of furniture, or to pick up something they need.  If you have household items cluttering up your home or garage it’s time to have a spring clean and provide others with a chance to pick up items they need for free.

A lot of good re-usable items end up being discarded but could easily be re-used so the Council supports these events as they help reduce waste. ‘Give or Take’ days also provide people a chance to pick up household items they need and at the same time save a bit of money.

Most people have items they no longer need or use, so it’s much better to pass these on for people to re-use than simply discard them.

This event supports Ryedale District Council’s Choose2Reuse campaign, which aims to minimise waste and encourage people to re-use items.

The events are fun for all the family and you never know, you might find something that you have always been looking for. Everybody is welcome.

Deliveries can also be made on Saturday 28 October 2017 between 6.00 – 8.00 pm, and from 8.00 am on Sunday.
