Garage Sale Trail bigger than ever


Snowy Monaro residents are getting ready for another bumper weekend of buying, selling and swapping when the Garage Sale Trail returns in October.

Registrations have opened for the Garage Sale Trail weekend to be held on Saturday, October 20 and Sunday, October 21. Last year, 54 garage sales were held in the Snowy Monaro and hundreds of more locals grabbed a bargain as part of this nation-wide decluttering initiative.

Households, schools and community organisations are encouraged to host garage sales, with the profits they make staying with them.

The Snowy Monaro community is encouraged to get involved, either as a seller or buyer, and help make a difference to the amount of waste in the region.

An anticipated 400,000 Australians will come together for the Garage Sale Trail extravaganza with an estimated 15,000 garage sales held across the country.

Since the 2017 event, the reuse revolution has taken off, as more people ditch single-use plastic, adopt reusable coffee cups, and recycle more efficiently.

This year’s Garage Sale Trail is expected to be bigger and better than ever.
