Coast residents are encouraged to pre-register their interest in a seller site for the 2017 Garage Sale Trail, the biggest reuse, recycle and environmentally sustainable Garage Sale in Australia.
The first 1,250 to register across Australia will receive a free seller’s pack.
The 2017 Garage Sale Trail, a national initiative supported by over 150 councils Australia-wide, will be held over the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, October 21-22.
Council Administrator, Mr Ian Reynolds, said “Central Coast Council came second to Brisbane in last year’s Garage Sale Trail, meaning the race is on to make the Coast number one.
“Council is getting behind this great initiative again this year, with the goal of making the Central Coast the most sustainable region in Australia,” Mr Reynolds said.
“This is the first year the Garage Sale Trail is being run across two days, which opens up the opportunity for Coasties to really get involved.
“The impacts of previous year’s Garage Sale Trail events have been incredibly positive, with a considerable amount of waste being recycled, from Coastie to Coastie, rather than going straight to landfill.
“The positive outcomes for our environment are thanks to the commitment to the initiative each year by Central Coast residents,” he said.
