The City of Kalamunda is calling on residents to choose to reuse & register for Garage Sale Trail.
Mayor Andrew Waddell said, “Get to know your neighbours and be part of the nation’s biggest ever weekend of garage sales this October.”
“Garage Sale Trail helps people to think about how we can all take responsibility for the waste we create. Items that are reused don’t end up in council collections or in landfill. It’s also a simple way for people to meet and talk to people in their community as well as fundraise.”
The City will be hosting its very own sale, at the Walliston transfer Station, on Saturday 21 October from 8am – 3pm, with all funds raised being donated to Kanyana Wildlife and Rehabilitation Centre.
“With a wide range of goods to rummage through, the Walliston Transfer Station Garage Sale we will have everything from bric-a-brac, antiques, motorbikes, instruments, books and more. Even the kitchen sink!.”
This year Garage Sale Trail will be held over an entire weekend on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 October 2017. Residents can join over 350,000 sellers and shoppers, as over 2 million items are set free from cupboards, garages and sheds across the nation.
For sellers it’s a free, fun and social way to de-clutter, find a home for your pre-loved stuff, meet local people and make some pocket money. Sellers can sell on one or both days.
For shoppers, it’s a great way to grab a bargain, find something unique and shop sustainably. Garage Sale Trail is a multi-award winning sustainability & community campaign powered by local councils.
Garage Sale Trail is an initiative run by Garage Sale Trail Foundation in partnership with over 150 local councils nationally. It’s the biggest reuse and community event in Australia involving over 15,000 garage sales and stalls nationally, 2 million items listed for sale and over 350,000 sellers and shoppers across the nation.
The Garage Sale Trail idea is simple. By organizing communities around Australia to hold garage sales on one big day, Garage Sale Trail aims to provide a platform for fundraising, promote reuse, enable local community connections and inspire fun in communities across the nation.
