The biannual Goods Exchange Weekend in Guelph is back just in time for the Victoria Day long weekend.

It’s a great way for residents to get rid of gently-used items or find something new, such as furniture, appliances or toys.

Residents are also encouraged to tour the neighbourhood to see what else is left at the curb in front of some homes.

The city recommends homeowners clear their yards of any wanted bikes, toys and gardening tools so they’re not accidentally taken.
