Garage Sale Trail Returns to Burnside Council area

The City of Burnside is part of Australia’s biggest community and sustainability event, Garage Sale Trail, on Saturday 20 October and Sunday 21 October.

Registrations are free and now open for households, schools, community groups and anyone who is up for a day of fun. It’s good for you, good for community and good for the planet too!

Burnside households, schools and community groups are set to join over 400,000 people across the country as a part of the eighth annual Garage Sale Trail.

A multi award-winning community and sustainability event, Garage Sale Trail is powered by over 140 local councils nation-wide. It is expected that this year’s weekend long event will involve more Australians than ever before, who will choose to re-use at over 15,000 garage sale events to be held across the country.

Mayor David Parkin said Garage Sale Trail presents a fun and social way for Burnside Council to encourage re-use and help educate the community about why we all need to take responsibility for the waste we generate.

“Garage Sale Trail also provides a way to meet your neighbours and connect with the broader community while decluttering and raising money for yourself or local causes,” Mayor Parkin said. “We're really pleased to be involved in this grass roots event that, like the re-use movement, is growing year on year.”

The first 1,250 sellers who register before the 10 September will receive a free seller pack with posters, price tags and more to help maximise your sales success.
