Garage Sale Trail set to Unearth Pre-loved Treasures
Local households, schools and community groups are getting ready to join a record number of garage sales with over 300 registered sales and stalls across the region, the highest in the State.
Mayor Lisa Matthews said the award-winning sustainability community event was a fun and social way to promote reuse, reduce waste to landfill and enable fundraising.
“It is great to see so many of our residents embracing this opportunity to turn trash into treasure and make a positive impact on the environment,” Mayor Matthews said.
“We are expecting thousands of shoppers to hit the streets in search of a bargain and there will be plenty up for grabs with more than 40,000 items listed for sale.
“Whether you are after clothes, kitchenware, bric-a-brac or even something a bit out of the ordinary the Garage Sale Trail is the perfect place to find pre-loved treasures.”
Council Unit Manager Waste Services and Business Development, Andrew Pearce said it was not too late for sellers to register their garage sale.
“Residents can register sales right up to the weekend, so if you have something in good condition that you are thinking of throwing out that could be sold instead, make sure you join this incredible community movement,” Mr Pearce said.
“Our community’s commitment to reuse means there is the opportunity for more than 50 tonnes to change hands this weekend rather than being sent to landfill.”
Shoppers can see what is up for sale and plan their trail at the Garage Sale Trail website.
