Declutter your home by turning trash into treasure
CENTRAL Coast Council is encouraging all residents to get involved so the coast can boast the biggest garage sale in Australia on October22.
The Garage Sale Trail is an annual event where thousands of garage sales happen on one day and residents can buy and sell reused treasures.
Council is encouraging local schools, community groups, charity groups, sellers, buyers, creators and everyone else to join with hundreds of Australians to think creatively about how we can reuse items that might otherwise be put out for council collection and end up in landfill.
Council administrator Ian Reynolds said council was proud to be involved in this event for the second year running and it was great to see the community support sustainable living.
"The former Wyong Shire Council was ranked second in NSW for sale registrations last year and now we are bigger, we can take the number one spot this year," he said.
"This is all about making neighbourhood and community connections and doing something positive for the environment at the same time.
"It is a fun, easy way to declutter your home, make some pocket money and turn your trash into someone else's treasure," he said. "Join us on the coast to make this year's Garage Sale Trail the best in Australia."
Registered sales will receive a free seller's pack and access to an interactive website to promote their event.
Shoppers can visit the website to track what events are on the Central Coast.
