Locals have taken on the reuse and recycle message by taking part in this years National Garage Sale Trail on Saturday.

Gunnedah Shire Council hosted the event at the Gunnedah showgrounds for the third consecutive year, with more than 30 stalls registering for the event. 

The sale attracted plenty of buyers for a range of items including, books, clothes, antiques, toys, furniture and more.

Gunnedah Shire Council Waste Management Superintendent Sheridan Cameron said the sale was an important step in minimising waste. 

“The idea behind the campaign is not only for residents to declutter or make some extra money, but to educate people and provide a way for them to keep unwanted items out of local landfills,” Ms Cameron said.

“Garage sales turn someone’s trash into someone else’s treasure and forms part of the reuse movement – the best way to recycle.”

Ms Cameron said the event was a success but couldn’t have happenend without support from the community.

“I would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who supported the event and made it another success,” she said.

Garage Sale Trail is a grass roots idea that was born in Bondi Beach in 2010 as means to encourage reuse, celebrate creativity and bring local people together.
