There is less than two weeks to go until Moree’s biggest garage sale which will be held at Jellicoe Park on Saturday, October 20 from 10am.
Moree Plain Shire Council will be hosting the second-hand market and car-boot sale to encourage the community to reduce the amount of usable items and equipment that is being sent to landfill by providing an event for buyers and sellers to meet.
Residents can book a free space at the second-hand market and car-boot sale and everyone is welcome to come and find a pre-loved bargain on the day.
Council’s waste support officer Dayna Kross encouraged locals to sell their unwanted household goods such as clothes, toys, kitchenware and sporting equipment from the boot of a vehicle, back of a truck or trailer or a marquee stall setup at Jellicoe Park.
“This year’s initiative is to create the king of garage sales and have everyone participate in selling their pre-loved goods and equipment at one location, creating a market atmosphere.
“This sustainability event helps people come together as a community to re-think what waste really is and how we can reuse items so they don’t end up in landfill,” said Mrs Kross.
Registrations are now open and you can register by visiting http://www.garagesaletrail.com.au/sale/1366 and clicking on the “join this sale” button and filling out the online registration form.
