2017 Garage Sale Trail
Now is the time to mark Saturday 21 October in your calendar and prepare for Garage Sale Trail 2017. Join all the fun by either hosting your own garage sale or visiting some in your neighbourhood. Walliston Tranfer Station will be joining in the Garage Sale Trail.
Australia’s fastest-growing sustainability and reuse event is a great chance to spring clean, declutter, make some money and meet the locals. To register a sale for free or to see what’s on offer at other local sales visit www.garagesaletrail.com.au.
In partnering with Garage Sale Trail the Shire of Kalamunda sees there is an opportunity to deliver a fun, creative and community-minded program for the benefit of residents and local organisations. The campaign provides everyone in our community the chance to repurpose their unwanted belongings, live in a more sustainable fashion by reducing waste, connect with other locals, and raise some money for themselves or others.
The Garage Sale Trail is about making sustainability fun and social. Passing on stuff you no longer want to someone who does want it is a pretty good form of waste reduction, made even better when it’s going to your neighbour.
In 2013 over 350,000 Australians participated in the campaign with over 1.5 million items listed for sale and reuse on the Garage Sale Trail website. On average, sellers met 13 other people from their neighbourhood on the day.
Visit the Garage Sale Trail website to register or for more information.
Why not donate to local op shops, list on sites such as freecycle.org, or Facebook buy, sell, and swop groups if you have any items left from the sale.
