The Garage Sale Trail has returned to the Sutherland Shire in 2017! Registrations are now open for Australia’s biggest social re-use and recycle experiment, which this year is being held over an entire weekend on Saturday October 21 and Sunday October 22.
Grab a bargain along The Garage Sale Trail, or find a loving new home for old belongings cluttering up your garage while making some cash in the process.
Households, community groups, charities, local business and schools in the Sutherland Shire are set to join an estimated 350,000 Australians across 150 local councils to list over two million items for sale in the seventh annual national Garage Sale Trail.
“Council is committed to continuing the war on waste and are proud to support the Garage Sale Trail as they prove once again that one person’s trash really can be another person’s treasure, and that there’s a buyer out there for every seller,” said Sutherland Shire Mayor Carmelo Pesce.
The Garage Sale Trial supports Council’s commitment to protect and sustain our beautiful natural environment in the Sutherland Shire, by reducing the amount of material going into landfill and educating residents on importance of limiting our resource consumption.
The Garage Sale Trail Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation which has its origins in the suburbs of Bondi and a mandate to generate a positive social and environmental change in communities across Australia.
In 2017 the Garage Sale Trail will extend over an entire weekend, giving buyers and sellers more opportunity to find their perfect match.
“Garage Sale Trail get people thinking about taking responsibility for the waste we create, the items that are reused don’t end up in council collections or in landfill and go on to be re-used and re-loved by members of our community,” said the Mayor.
