The Garage Sale Trail brings the community together by promoting garage sales across the shire. Find out how you can participate.
When: Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 October 2020
Where: Wollondilly Shire
Cost: Free Event
Details: Wollondilly Shire Council is bringing Australia’s biggest community and sustainability event, Garage Sale Trail, to the local area on 17 & 18 October 2020.
This jam-packed weekend is a great way to declutter, make some money and meet your neighbours. Sellers in 2019 made an average of $319 at their garage sale and made 49 new connections in their community.
Households, schools, community groups and local businesses are invited to host a sale or shop the Trail, joining over 400,000 Australians in this nationwide movement that sees over 3,500 tonnes of stuff diverted from landfill.
For shoppers, it’s a great opportunity to pick up a bargain and do your bit for the environment by preventing perfectly good items going to landfill.
Residents interested in organising and hosting a sale on the weekend can register their interest now at garagesaletrail.com.au. You’ll be notified when registrations open in August and be invited to list your garage sale event on the website. Participants get access to handy resources, tips and guides to make their sale a success, all provided for free.
The 2019 Wollondilly Garage Sale Trail was a great success with numerous households, schools and community groups getting involved.
The support of Wollondilly Shire Council makes the event free for residents.
