Do you have bicycles or skates you no longer use?

If so, you may consider donating the items to the Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society’s (CCCCS) Waste Wise Bicycles for All or its Skates for All programs.

CCCS Water Wise instructor Mary Forbes said the society collects second-hand bikes and skates throughout the year, refurbishes them as necessary and then redistributes them to community members.

Those interested in making a donation can drop items off at the society’s upcoming Earth Friendly Holiday event taking place Friday, Nov. 29 from 6 to 9 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 30 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.

This year the event is taking place at the Central Cariboo Arts Centre in the old fire hall.

Additionally, arrangements can be made for CCCS staff to pick up donated items by calling 250-398-7929 or by emailing the conservation society at ccentre@ccconserv.org.
