FOR a third consecutive year, the City of Joondalup is supporting the Garage Sale Trail initiative in an effort to reduce waste going to landfill.

This year’s event, which involves co-ordinated garage sales throughout the country, will be on Saturday, October 24. Mayor Troy Pickard is encouraging residents and community groups to get involved as buyers and sellers.

“The Garage Sale Trail provides a platform for making money, fundraising, socialising and being creative, as well as making recycling and sustainability fun,” he said.

Last year, more than 350,000 people took part, selling 2.9 million items. Go to www.garagesale|trail.com.au.
