RESIDENTS are being urged to recycle their unwanted and reusable items and find free goodies at a Give or Take day in Weymouth.
The borough council-run event aims to provide an opportunity for people to get rid of your unwanted items and pick up somebody else’s free of charge.
The Give or Take Day aims to help the environment by reducing the amount of waste going to landfill and to help communities save money by recycling.
Anyone without items to bring along can attend and pick up items on the day.
Karyn Punchard, borough council street scene manager, said: “This free event is a brilliant, environmentally friendly, way to get rid of your unused or unwanted reusable goods quickly and easily.
“Do come along, you might be surprised at what you may find.”
Welcome items include books, toys, clothes, tools, bric-a-brac, kitchenware, small furniture, jewellery, bikes and bike parts, plants and working electrical equipment – all items must be able to fit into a car.
Items can be dropped off from 9.15am until 11.30am.
