Garage Sale Trail fun for Isaac bargain hunters
ISAAC residents across the region are gearing up to take part in Australia’s biggest community and sustainability event this month.
A multi award-winning campaign initiative, Garage Sale Trail is powered by over 140 local councils nationwide and will be held across the country on Saturday and Sunday, October 20-21.
It is expected that this year’s weekend-long event will involve more Australians than ever before, who will choose to reuse at over 15,000 garage sale events throughout Australia.
The initiative is run by Australian not-for-profit Garage Sale Trail Foundation to create positive social and environmental change in communities.
Mayor Anne Baker said the events being hosted in communities in the Isaac region presented a fun and social way for the council to encourage residents to recycle and reuse.
“Reusing and recycling is good for the community and good for the planet too,” Cr Baker said.
“The Garage Sale Trail events across Isaac offer a unique opportunity for residents to clear out their pre-loved items, find treasure and have some fun.
“It also provides a way to meet your neighbours and connect with the community whilst de-cluttering and making a few extra dollars on your unwanted goods.
“(The) council is really pleased to be involved in this great community initiative for the second year.
“I would encourage residents to get involved in one of the locally organised community car boot or garage sale events, or to jump on the trail and register their own garage sale.”
