CHOOSE TO REUSE AT THE NATION’S BIGGEST GARAGE SALE. NOW A WEEKEND!
Garage Sale Trail, the multi-award winning sustainability & community campaign powered by local councils is back again as a weekend long event on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 October 2017.
Households, community groups, charities, local businesses and schools in the Central Highlands are set to join an estimated 350,000+ Australians as a part of the seventh annual national Garage Sale Trail.
Aimed at bringing communities together and promoting reuse, Garage Sale Trail is powered by over 150 local councils and in 2017 has set two major national goals:
- To see 2 million items listed for reuse on one big weekend of garage sales across the country
- And enable 120,000 new neighbourly connections Australia-wide over the weekend long event
Mayor Kerry Hayes has welcomed the unique opportunity to promote reuse and community building in a fun and creative way through Garage Sale Trail.
“Central Highlands Regional Council is proud to be actively involved in bringing this national initiative to our residents. 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” Mayor Hayes said.
The initiative is run by Australian not-for-profit Garage Sale Trail Foundation. The event exists to create positive social and environmental change in communities across Australia. An idea that’s good for the planet and good for community too!
