Broome households, schools and groups are set to join more than 400,000 people across Australia in the country’s biggest community and sustainability event again.

The Garage Sale Trail willmake a comeback in 2019, on October 19 and 20, encouraging people to put second-hand first and reduce waste.

Those keen to be part of the Trail can register their sale on the Garage Sale Trail website or bring their sale items to one of the Shire of Broome’s three locations on October 20 from 7:30am.

The Shire-hosted garage sales will take place at Solway Park in Cable Beach, Maritana Park in Sunset Park, and at Tanami Park in Bilingurr.

Shire president Harold Tracey said the Trail was a fun way to encourage reuse and help educate the community about the impact we can all make when we buy secondhand. Garage Sale Trail co-founder Andrew Valder said more than two million items are expected to be listed for sale and reuse.
