Garage Sale Trail

Garage Sale Trail, the multi-award winning sustainability and community campaign powered by local councils is back in the City of Wanneroo as a weekend long event on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 October

Households, community groups, charities, local businesses and schools in the City of Wanneroo are set to join an estimated 350,000+ Australians as a part of the seventh annual Garage Sale Trail.

Aimed at bringing communities together and promoting reuse, Garage Sale Trail sees more than 150 local councils participate in the Australia-wide initiative each year. In 2017 the event has two primary goals:

  • To see 2 million items listed for reuse on one big weekend of garage sales across the country
  • To enable 120,000 new neighbourly connections over the weekend long event

Mayor Tracey Roberts has welcomed the involvement of the City of Wanneroo and the unique opportunity to promote reuse in a fun and creative way.

“After winning the ‘best newcomer’ award in 2016, The City of Wanneroo is proud to again be actively involved in bringing this national initiative to our residents.”

“Garage Sale Trail helps people to think about how we can all take responsibility for the waste we create - items we reuse don’t end up in council collections or landfill. It’s also a simple way for people to meet other people in their community and fundraise for a great cause.” Mayor Tracey Roberts said.

The initiative is run by Australian not-for-profit Garage Sale Trail Foundation and aims to create positive social and environmental change in communities across Australia.

Registration is free and now open at garagesaletrail.com.au.
