Plan record Garage Sale Trail

RESIDENTS are encouraged to declutter, reuse, meet the neighbours and earn some money by joining the nation’s biggest weekend of garage sales.

Inner West Council residents have embraced the Garage Sale Trail which returns this year on October 19-20 with a weekend of simultaneous garage sales across households, schools, community groups and other organisations.
Last year Council topped the NSW leaderboard with 415 sales or stalls and this year is aiming to increase that number to 500 as an official supporter of the event, encouraging the community to embrace the reuse and second-hand culture of the Inner West.
Last year 6,406 people took part in Garage Sale Trails in the Inner West either as a shopper or seller and there were 3,173 participating seller or shopper households.
Households made up the highest number of participants followed by apartments, streets, businesses and then schools.
A council spokesperson says the sales also help to raise general awareness of recycling with 82 per cent of last year’s participants reporting that they are more conscious about waste and understanding their role in reducing it.
She says the key messages of Garage Sale Trail are that reusing items has a positive impact on the planet and our community, and we should be doing more to avoid and reduce the amount of waste we create.
