Everyone loves a bargain and there's no better place to discover pre-loved treasures than a garage sale.
Turn your trash into treasure and help reduce landfill
With millions of tonnes of waste being sent to landfill by Australian households each year, the humble garage sale is about much more than just earning cash or finding a second-hand bargain. Holding a garage sale is an easy way to reduce landfill and avoid a trip to the tip.
The Northern Rivers are leading the way on reuse and recycling with the annual Second Hand Saturday initiative which promotes up to 1000 garage sales each September. Residents are encouraged to register their garage sale on the Second Hand Saturday website and have their garage sale promoted in the local media and online for FREE. There is also the option of a leftovers sale the following weekend in case not everything gets sold!
In the Clarence, Second Hand Saturday is a great day out for the whole family, and with more than 85 sales to choose from, you can guarantee there will be something for everyone.

Second Hand Saturday is coordinated by North East Waste on behalf of its member north coast Councils, funded by the NSW EPA's Waste Less Recycle More initiative through the waste levy.
