We all know the saying, "one man's trash is another man's treasure." So why take it to the landfill if someone else might love it?

Get ready, the weekend of May 1st-2nd will be the City of Meridian's 3rd annual trash or treasure event. This is so cool and so easy to take part in! Basically, that weekend, take items you don't want and put them out at your curb. Then, wait for the public to come and take what they want! This great news goes for the opposite as well: get in your car (or truck) and go searching for treasures that other's may not want!

Some examples of items, according to the City Of Meridian's press release:

  • Old Desks
  • Weights
  • Chairs
  • Bicycles
  • And anything you might think someone else may love!

To make things easier for yourself, and others, it's best to register and mark your location on this map. This way, others will know where participants will be placing items at their curbs. The press release also mentions Republic Services' Spring Cleanup:

The Trash or Treasure event coincides with Republic Services’ Spring Clean-Up week which starts May 3. This way items that aren’t picked up during Trash or Treasure, or donated, can be placed on the curb on trash day. Extra items set out during Spring Clean-Up must be bundled. Citizens with bulky items, such as furniture, need to make prior arrangements by calling 208-345-1265, signing up at www.meridiancity.org/springcleanup, or noting it online when signing up for Trash or Treasure by 12pm on Friday, April 30.
