Garage Sale Trail returns to Ararat Rural City

Posted Friday 14 September, 04:48pm

Ararat Rural City Council is encouraging residents to de-clutter their home and turn old into gold by signing up for the 2018 Garage Sale Trail.

Ararat will once again be part of Australia’s biggest community and sustainability event, Garage Sale Trail on Saturday, October 20 and Sunday, October 21.

Registrations are free and now open for households, schools, community groups and anyone who is up for a day of fun.

A multi award-winning community and sustainability event, Garage Sale Trail is powered by over 140 local councils nation-wide.

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 to be held across the country.

Ararat Rural City Council Mayor, Cr Gwenda Allgood said that Garage Sale Trail presents a fun and social way for residents to encourage and educate each other about why we all need take responsibility for the waste we generate.

“Garage Sale Trail also provides a way to meet your neighbours and connect with the broader community whilst decluttering and raising money for yourself or local causes,” she said.

“We're really pleased to be involved in this grass roots event. It is something that is growing year-on-year, just like the reuse movement.”
