Turn your trash into treasure with the Garage Sale Trail

If you haven’t already then it’s time to start spring-cleaning your home preparation for this year’s Garage Sale Trail.

Households, community groups, schools, charities, makers and creators are all invited to join in on the event, which will see garage sales across the country sell all sorts of trinkets and treasures.

The aim of the Garage Sale Trail is to help encourage community recycling and reduce the amount of waste that ends up in our landfills.

A lot of items that get thrown away can be recycled, reused or repurposed in some way. If everyone were to recycle regularly it would help lead to a more sustainable community for us all.

Plus, by taking part in events such as the Garage Sale Trail we can not only save ourselves a trip to the tip, but we can also make some money if our trash turns out to be someone else’s treasure.

This year’s Garage Sale Trail will be taking place on Saturday 25th October. You can join in on the fun by either hosting your own garage sale or visiting some in your neighbourhood.

To register a sale for free or to see what’s on offer at other local sales visit www.garagesaletrail.com.au. The website also offers “How-To Guides” to help sellers make the most out of the event.
