LOCALS will soon be able to cash in any unwanted items with this year’s Garage Sale Trail.
Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) will host this year’s event in the hopes of limiting the amount of reusable items that end up in landfill.
LPSC mayor said limiting the amount of waste in landfills was everyone’s responsibility.
“As a community, we have a responsibility to wage war on waste and reduce the amount of material that ends up in landfill,” Cr Hope said.
“That’s why LPSC supports Garage Sale Trail.
“To date over 4 million items have been traded through this event and potentially saved from landfill.
“One garage sale on its own makes very little difference, but when you have hundreds of thousands participating in this grass roots activity, then it helps drive significant change.”
Cr Hope said there was still time for locals to sign up for this year’s event.
“It’s not too late to sign up for the weekend of October 20 and 21,” he said.
“By signing up for free with Garage Sale Trail, you’ll get your own web page to use to promote your sale online and a seller dashboard to invite and manage your stakeholders.
“It’s totally up to you what you do with the money raised.
“Some sellers keep the proceeds, others choose to fundraise for a charity, local community group or cause.
“Setting up your sale listing should take just a minute or two of your time and once completed you’ll get access to promotional materials created to help make your sale a success.”
