Dubbo Regional Council is bringing Australia’s biggest community and sustainability event, Garage Sale Trail, to the local area on21 & 22 November, 2020 (please note the date change).

This jam-packed weekend is a great way to declutter, make some money and meet your neighbours. Sellers in 2019 made an average of $319 at their garage sale and made 49 new connections in their community.

Households, schools, community groups and local businesses are invited to host a sale or shop the Trail, joining over 400,000 Australians in this nationwide movement that sees over 3,500 tonnes of stuff diverted from landfill.

For shoppers, it’s a great opportunity to pick up a bargain and do your bit for the environment by preventing perfectly good items going to landfill.
