Community Garage Sales
When: Saturday June 8th
Where: Your home!

On Saturday June 8th, feel free to join the community in participating in a garage sale. Holding a garage sales on one date within the community helps to attract attention and improves sales. Each community member is responsible for planning and holding their own garage sale, on their own property. AGCL will help advertise garage sales this weekend by posting signs signaling garage sales within the community.
Kick it to the Curb

When: morning of Sunday June 9th
Where: end of your driveway/property

Have any leftover garage sale goods that you just want to get rid of for free? Place any unwanted items at the end of your driveway or yard, signalling to others that these items are free for the taking.

AGCL Blue Bin Event
When: Sunday June 9th
Time: 12-3pm
Where: AGCL Hall parking lot

Have any household refuse that you need to get rid of? Feel free to bring it to our community sponsored big bin event. This is intended for items that are too large for you to place out on garage collection day. Hazardous items are not accepted. You MUST present a current AGCL membership.

Please note this bin goes DIRECTLY to the garbage dump, so not all items are accepted, as we do not sort any material for recycling.

Items that are NOT accepted are: Paints and paint related products, any hazardous waste, electrical items, small or large household appliances. If the item can be recycled, it will not be accepted at AGCLs big bin event.
