LOCAL residents are being encouraged to “choose to reuse” when the Garage Sale Trail returns as a weekend long event on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 October.
Glenorchy households, community groups, charities, local businesses and schools are set to join an estimated 350,000 Australians to take part in the seventh annual multi-award winning sustainability and community campaign.
Glenorchy City Council Commissioner Sue Smith welcomed the involvement of the Glenorchy City Council and the unique opportunity to promote reuse and community building in a fun and creative way through the Garage Sale Trail.
“Council is proud to be actively involved in bringing this national initiative to our residents,” Commissioner Smith said.
“Garage Sale Trail helps people to think about how we can all take responsibility for the waste we create by reusing items that might otherwise be put out for waste collection and possibly end up in landfill.
“The event also enables local community connections and fundraising for local community groups and charities.”
Run by Australian not-for-profit organisation the Garage Sale Trail Foundation, the event exists to create positive social and environmental change in communities across Australia.
It is powered and made possible by more than 150 local councils nationally.
Registration for the event is free.
