Everyone loves a bargain and there's no better place to discover pre-loved treasures than a garage sale.
The date is set for 22 September and registrations are now open.
Plus if you think you have too much for just one day, there’s an optional second date the following Saturday 29 September for those who participate on the first date.
Visit www.secondhandsaturday.com.au to register and start your de-clutter process through a fun quiz the whole family can get involved in.
With free advertising and enthusiastic treasure hunters flocking from every corner of town, this is an event you don't want to miss!
For more information visit the Second Hand Saturday website or phone Clarence Valley Council (02) 6643 0200.
This is a joint North East Waste and Clarence Valley Council funded initiative.
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.
Lainie Lee and Kris Thorley prepare for Second Hand Saturday at the Tucabia Hall.
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.
