Big Bin Day Recap

The HWCA had another successful Big Bin Day for members today.  We had three bins filled to overflowing by about 10:45 AM, with every kind of stuff imaginable!
We apologize to the two members who had to be turned away because we had no more room in the bins.
Thanks so much to our amazing volunteers.
Linda Seyler, Tom Stewart, Scott Irwin,  Bob Foote, Leo Bax, Clare Shantz, Doug Graham, Paul Mennill, Joe Mayo, and our honourary supervisor Bill Redhead.  What a team!

If you have junk/waste to dispose of before our next Big Bin Day, feel free to call Kevin or Kathy at Direct Waste.  519-238-2525.

Donating Gently Used Items in Grand Bend and Area

Now that our Garage Sale is over and the Restore truck is booked, some of you have asked where you can donate gently used items for your next round of home organizing. 

There are a number of options for donating in Grand Bend. Some of them are listed on our website under the ‘Local Service Providers’ in the secured ‘Members’ section. You should check out this helpful new resource if you haven’t already.

  • Clothing and some small household items can be dropped off at Arc Angels in Dashwood or Blessings in Parkhill or Zurich
  • Home improvement products and household items can be donated to the ReStore in Exeter. For furniture or large donations they will send a truck.
  • The Huron Women’s Shelter has a list of items on their website they will take.

There are probably more to add to the list. If you would like to recommend an agency that you have used in the past you can let me know and I’ll pass it on to Bev Mayo and the Welcome Committee.

Big Bin Day is this Saturday

Big Bin Day
• Saturday June 8th – Rain or Shine
• 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
• Huron Woods Clubhouse Parking Lot


This event is for Huron Woods Members only. The Big Bin event is an opportunity for HWCA members to dispose of or recycle large items. The Board has ordered large disposal bins which will be located in the Clubhouse parking lot the morning of Saturday June 8th.

Items that will be accepted include mattresses, box springs, paint cans, dehumidifiers, as well as the usual couches, chairs, household furniture, washers, dryers, scrap lumber, and electronics.

We will not accept refrigerators or freezers. We will also not accept hazardous waste items which includes old propane tanks, gasoline, varsol, any other petroleum based solvents and aerosol cans.

ReStore pickup update: Because we have so many donations the ReStore is sending out a Huron Woods special truck this Thursday morning. I MIGHT be able to squeeze in another pickup depending on what you have.
