LAKE GEORGE -- This weekend, residents of the town are welcome to place their unwanted items at the curb for other citizens to adopt, town leaders said this week.
The town of Lake George has designated Saturday Oct. 6 through Monday Oct. 8 as Free-to-All Weekend during which they are encouraged to “free-cycle” items that are likely to be of use to others, Lake George Town Board member Marisa Muratori said.
“The purpose of the event is an extension of the town’s initiatives to promote re-use, and to encourage the community’s recycling efforts,” she said, noting that the event may be held annually.
“We encourage people to look at things in their house — items that will be useful to someone else,” she continued. “This is intended to prevent things from going into the trash stream.”
Mattresses, couches or upholstered items shouldn’t be put out by roadways, she said.
Also, residents must remove unclaimed items by the evening of Monday Oct. 8.
