30 garage sales and counting registered across Yass Valley

Thirty garage sales have been registered for this weekend’s Garage Sale Trail and with four days still to register Yass Valley residents still have the opportunity to take part. 

This Saturday, 22nd October 2016 will see over 400,000 Australians hitting the streets in search of a bargain for the national Garage Sale Trail. It is expected that over $10 million worth of second-hand wares will be up for sale at 15,000 garage sales and stalls across the country.

“Holding a garage sale is a great way for the community to understand a simple concept of reuse and recycle,” said Yass Valley Mayor, Rowena Abbey. “In today’s society we can be very quick to just dispose of things that we no longer want or need. But who is to say that someone else doesn’t want the items you no longer need? As the old saying goes, ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.’”

“The more people buy and sell at garage sales potentially leads to less waste ending up in landfill or at our transfer stations,” said Carina Martin, Facilities Coordinator at Yass Valley Council. “It is fantastic to see how many households and community groups have taken up the opportunity to be part of Garage Sale Trail in 2016 and with time still to register, I encourage everyone to take part.”

Now in its sixth year, Garage Sale Trail has grown from one event in Sydney to a national day supported by over 150 local councils. Through engaging communities around Australia to host and shop at garage sales, the initiative aims to promote reuse, waste education and community building.
