KELLYVILLE residents are cleaning out their cupboards in preparation for Australia’s biggest garage sale.
The Garage Sale Trail is a national initiative which aims to provide a novel way for residents to declutter, reduce waste, make money and raise money for charity.
Mayor Yvonne Keane said one way people could get involved is to band together with their neighbours and put on a street wide garage sale.
“The more garage sales per street, the greater the response from bargain hunters,” Mayor Keane said.
“It gives local community members the opportunity to grab a bargain and make a few dollars from items they no longer want.”
Homeowners on Mediati Avenue, in Kellyville, are one of 45 sales registered in the area for the Garage Sale Trail on October 22.
A range of second-hand goods are for sale including books, clothes, tools, kitchen and general household items, and furniture.
“With almost 50 garage sales already registered in The Sydney Hills, there will be plenty to choose from,” Mayor Keane said.
“My advice for shoppers is to get up early and plan your day - that way you ensure you don’t miss a thing.”
The award-winning sustainability and community campaign was founded in 2010 and has grown from one event in Sydney to a massive national program supported by more than 54 local NSW Councils.
