One big weekend of Garage Sales

Published 09 September 2019


Did you know the average household throws out enough waste to fill a three-bedroom house each year?  

Garage sales are a great way to divert household items that might otherwise end up in landfill.

To help reduce waste and encourage you to choose second-hand first, council is bringing Garage Sale Trail, Australia’s biggest weekend of garage sales, to the Moreton Bay Region from 19-20 October 2019.

More than 400,000 Australians are expected to participate across the country by either hosting a garage sale or shopping the trail.

Hosting a sale is open to everybody - from households to whole streets, schools, charities and community groups - everyone is encouraged to get involved!

There are many reasons to host a garage sale, here are just a few:

  • each garage sale on the trail is estimated to redistribute half a tonne of pre-loved household items including furniture and clothing
  • those who hosted sales last year made an average of 46 new connections locally
  • hosting a garage sale is a fantastic way to raise money for a charity or community group!

Register a garage sale or shop the trail.
