Garage Sale Trail Award

Stirling Times - - Stirling Scoop -

The City has re­ceived a Garage Sale Trail Gov­ern­ment Award of Ex­cel­lence for get­ting be­hind the an­nual pro­gram. For the first time in its seven-year his­tory, the 2017 Garage Sale Trail was a week­end-long event, which prompted a 20 per cent jump in par­tic­i­pa­tion. To spread the word lo­cally, the City pro­moted its Tip Shop at the Bal­catta Re­cy­cling Cen­tre as a go-to des­ti­na­tion for bar­gains across the two-day event. In ad­di­tion, all six of the City’s li­braries hosted book sales on the Satur­day as a way to re­use sur­plus stock. The City’s so­cial me­dia chan­nels also helped prompt lo­cals to hold more than 117 garage sales and stalls. If you have un­wanted house­hold items in good con­di­tion such as fur­ni­ture and ap­pli­ances, drop them off at the Bal­catta Re­cy­cling Cen­tre. The cen­tre at 238 Bal­catta Road, Bal­catta is open Mon­day to Satur­day from 7.30am to 4.00pm and Sun­days from 8.00am to 4.00pm.
