Garage Sale Trail’ is the biggest community and sustainability event in the country, it is one big day of Garage Sales happening right across Australia on Saturday October 24th 2015. Lithgow is set to join hundreds of thousands of people nationally as part of this event to sell and reuse items that are no longer needed.
Lithgow Deputy Mayor Ray Thompson said today “Lithgow Council is proud to be actively involved in bringing this national initiative to our residents. Garage Sale Trail helps people to think creatively about how we can reuse items that might otherwise be put out for waste collection and possibly end up in landfill.”
“The event is open to all households, local organisations, schools, community groups and charities and people can register via the website www.garagesaletrail.com.au.” concluded Deputy Mayor Thompson.
Registration is free and includes a seller webpage that can be personalised by naming the garage sale and listing items that will be for sale on the day. There’s also tips and tools available to help sellers promote their sales locally. Those who register before the 25th of September will receive a seller pack to help ensure a successful garage sale.
Implementing the waste management hierarchy of avoidance, reuse, recycle and dispose forms part of the Developing Built Environment strategies in the Lithgow Community Strategic Plan 2026.
