Garage Sale Trail fun for Isaac bar­gain hunters

Central Queensland News - - NEWS -

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.”
