Mayor Simon Murray and James Turnell, Council’s Program Leader Waste Management and NIRW Executive Officer, are encouraging the community to get rid of their unwanted items and host a garage sale during this year’s Garage Sale Trail.

Maximise your chances to clear clutter by joining an estimated 350,000+ households, community groups, charities, local businesses and schools across the country registering to be a part of the national Garage Sale Trail 2017.

Armidale Regional Council, with support from Northern Inland Regional Waste (NIRW), is hosting the 2017 national Garage Sale Trail and encouraging everyone to ‘choose to reuse’.

If you have a room or shed full of things that ‘might come in handy’ one day but are instead taking up much-needed space, it might be time to host a garage sale. Those things might just come in handy for someone else!

“The national Garage Sale Trail offers a coordinated strategy that might help you to reclaim your spare room or shed without sending unwanted household items to landfill,” said James Turnell, Council’s Program Leader Waste Management and NIRW Executive Officer.

“By participating in a dedicated weekend, we hope to maximise possibilities for those looking to sell unwanted goods as well as for people looking for a bargain.”

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.

It hopes to see two million items listed for reuse on one big weekend of garage sales across the country, and also enable 120,000 new neighbourly connections Australia-wide over the weekend long event.

The Garage Sale Trail is happening in Armidale and across the country on Saturday, October 21 and Sunday, October 22.
