Scugog’s Treasure Hunt

The Township of Scugog is organizing its 7th annual SCUGOG TREASURE HUNT, to be held on Saturday, October 25, 2014.
The Township invites all residents to place any unwanted items on their boulevard (front
yard) on Saturday, October 25, 2014. Throughout the day, other residents will have the opportunity to travel around the Township looking for amazing finds at no cost.  Items generally found in a Treasure Hunt include bicycles, clothing, furniture, garden tools, hardware, sporting goods and tools.
This recycling event is a great opportunity to raise awareness of Waste Reduction
Week, which is being held October 20-26, 2014. Waste Reduction Week is designed to raise public awareness about how waste impacts on the environment, society and the economy.  This year's motto is Too Good to Waste. The Scugog Treasure Hunt is a perfect example of the Waste Reduction Week motto, as unwanted items too good to be disposed of in a landfill can find a home with someone else.
After the event on Saturday, October 25, 2014, participating residents are asked to call
the Municipal Office to report on the success of their efforts and provide comments and feedback regarding the program.
Residents will be required to have all unclaimed items returned to their residence by Saturday, October 25, 2014 by 4:00 p.m.  All items left on the boulevard will NOT be collected in the regular waste pick-up.
For more information about the Scugog Treasure Hunt and to register as a participant please contact Shawna Cornish at 905-985-7346 ext 112.  All participants
will receive a sign indicating their involvement in the sale to be display on
the boulevard.
