Australia’s favourite festival of reuse, the Garage Sale Trail, returns to Lane Cove this November. Happening online and in your community, it’s a month of money making, waste reducing, treasure hunting fun!
From unearthing the ultimate pre-loved gem at one of 10,000 garage sales to learning how to repair and repurpose your stuff, this November is all about caring for the planet and falling in love with your stuff again.
Garage Sale Trail 2022 will take place over four weekends from 29 October to 20 November. Made locally possible by the NSW EPA and Lane Cove Council, the festival encourages residents to sell, shop and learn about the circular economy.
Between 29 October and 5 November, the Lane Cove community can be part of the Trail Tutorials, a series of inspiring and educational talks all about sustainable fashion and renovations. Featuring Barry Du Bois, Annabel Crabb and Craig Reucassel—alongside experts in fashion, home renovations and the circular economy—the sessions are hosted online and free to attend.
Then, over two weekends of garage sales hosted simultaneously around the nation, declutter and sell pre-loved goods or shop the trail and snag a guilt-free bargain locally on 12-13 and 19-20 November.

Council aims to help households divert more waste from landfill by supporting opportunities for residents to pass on items they may no longer need. Garage Sales are a great way to find unwanted items a new home, make some money and meet the neighbours. You can download a promotional poster to advertise, hints and tips for a successful day and price tags for easy labelling of items.
Goods booked through a Council Clean Up Collection are sent directly to landfill. Having a Garage Sale is a great way to reuse items and an opportunity to encourage your neighbours to also consider hosting a sale. If you have any items leftover that aren't suitable for donation to charity or recycling, please take your items inside until your Council Clean Up. For more information please contact the Waste Hotline on 1300 655 006.
