Australian’s who love a good op-shop or garage sale can get excited for the upcoming sustainability and community festival, Garage Sale Trail 2021.

For three weeks in November, the Garage Sale Trail encourages community members to sell, shop and learn about the circular economy.

One and a half million kilos of unwanted goods diverted from landfill

The event’s national organisers say the Garage Sale Trail diverted more than 1.5 million kilos of unwanted goods from landfill across more than 10,000 garage sales around the country in 2020.

This year, Australians can again do Garage Sale Trail both online or in the community, depending on local restrictions.

Participants can host a sale in real life, or on Instagram, Facebook or TikTok, selling via live stream, in stories or selling in your feed.

Denmark to be a hive of activity during the Garage Sale Trail

In the Shire of Denmark, Chief Executive Officer David Schober said the Shire was glad to be once again bringing the popular event to the community, encouraging locals to get involved.

“Our community here in Denmark is passionate about the environment and our Council, on their behalf, is actively working on promoting reduce, reuse, recycle activities locally so the Garage Sale Trail is a very welcome event on our community calendar,” Mr Schober said.

“Now that registrations for the nation-wide event are open for 2021, we encourage our community to get behind the initiative and to sign up to take part.

“Let’s make Denmark a hive of activity when Garage Sale Trail time comes around in November.”
